Venice water main repair from Hurricane Irma, leaves some residents without water
Although water service has been restored to the City of Venice following the storm, several areas are without water now due to a water main repair. When the repair will be made is undetermined at this time.
The reason for the undetermined time of restoration is due to FPL needing to get into the area to repair a downed power line and remove debris to ensure City employees’ safety.
The area affected is:
· 1000-1044 (even numbered addresses) Groveland Ave.
· 1009-1045 (odd) Myrtle Ave.
· 315 and 1040 School St.
· 712-744 (even) Myrtle Ave.
· 711-745 (odd) Pineland Ave.
· 401 and 463 S U.S. 41 Bypass
Once water is restored, these areas will also be required to boil water for consumption only (drinking, cooking) for 72 hours and until the boil water advisory has been rescinded.
A Code Red has been issued for this area.
