Water main breaks at Venice Train Depot, residents asked to boil water.
SARASOTA CO., Fla. (WWSB) — UPDATE: Although water to the Island of Venice has been restored, residents may experience low water pressure for the next 10 hours due to the water main break at the Venice Train Depot around 4 p.m., according to city Utilities Field Ops Supervisor Dave Abene.
Currently there is no access to the SCAT bus station or the restrooms at the Train Depot, or the nearby boat ramp while repairs continue.
Buses are stopping at the corner of Seaboard and Venice Ave. for passengers, about 150 feet away.
— The City of Venice Utilities Department is working to repair a major water main break at the Venice Train Depot that occurred around 5 p.m. according to Utilities Director Tim Hochuli.
The break is causing customers on the Island of Venice to experience very low water pressure, or none at all.
The cause of the break is not yet known.
The entrance to the Train Deport is currently closed off, including to the buses that normally stop there.
Once water pressure has been restored, a boil water notice will be sent out to residents.
Updates will be forthcoming as officials receive more information and repairs are made.
