Update: Everest Parkway scheduled water main shutdown moved to Feb. 13
Update: The city of Cape Coral announced today the potable water main shutdown originally scheduled for Jan. 30, in the area of Everest Parkway from Del Prado to Southeast 26th Place, will now take place Monday, Feb. 13, at 9 a.m. The potable water main is expected to be turned back on by Monday evening.
This shutdown will affect a large number of residents.
Crews will complete the installation of two new fire hydrant assemblies as part of the Reclaimed Water Transmission Main along Everest Parkway, and install a new inline valve in order to prevent having to shut down the Everest complex during future shutdowns. This work was started on Jan. 23.
The city said affected residents have been notified via phone, text, and email.
Following the restoration of access to drinking water, city officials advise users to boil water for one minute or use bottled water as a precaution until the advisory has been lifted. This notification applies to water used for drinking, cooking, making ice, washing dishes, and brushing teeth.
