UPDATE: Hudson Bayou health advisory lifted

by: Kurt Schultheis Senior Editor

The city of Sarasota lifted a health advisory for the Hudson Bayou over the weekend following several days of water quality monitoring due to a force main break that occurred last week.

Last Monday, a concrete pipe was accidentally broken in the afternoon by a contractor while working on a construction site on Osprey Avenue.

The main break spilled about 200 gallons of raw sewage into Hudson Bayou, but no fecal matter made its way into the water.

For more information, contact utilities director Javier Vargas at 955-2325, ext. 6210.
