On December 16, 2021 the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced the development of a new regulation, Lead and Copper Rule Improvements (LCRI), to better protect communities from exposure to lead in drinking water. This regulation requires all water systems to create a comprehensive service line inventory. In an effort to expedite the inventory process, the Englewood Water District (EWD) is asking residents to self-report the material composition of their home’s service line. Please contact EWD at 941-474-3217 if you have any questions or concerns.

Assistance paying utility bills may be available. Sarasota County residents can view information on the Emergency Rental Assistance Program here.

Reminder —  Please do not flush items down toilets that do not belong there.  Items such as Paper Towels, Wipes (such as Baby Wipes, Disinfecting Wipes, etc..) and Cloth Rags can cause problems for sewer collection systems.  These items can also cause blockages in a households own sewer pipes, which could cause sewer to back up into peoples homes.  Items such as these should be discarded in the trash.  Wastewater that comes from flushing should only contain water, human waste and toilet paper.
