Manatee County Taking Steps to Lessen Red Tide Impacts

Government

Manatee County Government has intensified its daily beach raking efforts along the shores of Anna Maria Island, and County staff have begun taking additional steps to address red tide before it reaches local beaches. To date Manatee County has avoided the worst impacts from an early summer red tide bloom, but County leaders are taking steps to ensure Manatee beaches remain clear from debris. “We are staying ahead of this situation and we’ll be announcing additional efforts to keep our beaches clean and clear in the coming days,” said Dr. Scott Hopes, Manatee County Administrator. “Multiple County departments and dozens of our staff are making considerable efforts behind the scenes to ensure we know where red tide is, where it’s headed and how we’ll address it before it impacts our local beaches.”
