Lee County Utilities issues precautionary Boil Water Notice for North Fort Myers neighborhood
Lee County Utilities has issued a precautionary Boil Water Notice due to a water main break serving a neighborhood in North Fort Myers along New Post Road from Bayshore Road to the entrance of Old Bridge Village, including all of:
• New Post Drive
• Foxlake Drive
• Arbor Lakes Drive West
• Arbor Lakes Drive East
• Nantucket Circle
• Crystal Lakes Drive
• Crystal Lakes Lane
• Longleaf Drive
• Torreya Circle
• White Cedar Lane
• Sourwood Court
• Loblolly Drive
• Horn Beam Court
The order includes about 650 customers, largely residential.
Once the water has been tested and is safe to drink, Lee County will issue a notice that the precautionary boil water notice has been lifted.
Residents can also monitor www.leegov.com, www.leegov.com/utilities or follow Lee County Government on Facebook.
As a precaution, all water used for drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth or washing dishes must be boiled at a rolling boil for one minute or, as an alternative, bottled water may be used.
Boil Water Notices are placed into effect when the water pressure within a water main drops below 20 psi. This usually occurs during a water main break or water main shut off for utility repairs.
To ensure safe drinking water, Lee County Utilities places the affected area under a precautionary Boil Water Notice until bacteriological testing shows the drinking water is safe.
