Is Ft Myers Beach An Island

A damaged water main caused residents on Fort Myers Beach to experience low water pressure Monday and prompted Lee County Utilities to issue a precautionary boil water notice for the San Carlos Island area

The notice went out to 725 residences and 35 businesses at addresses from 18100 San Carlos Boulevard to the Matanzas Bridge.

Residents and businesses can expect to have their water restored by 7 p.m. today,

Once the water has been tested and is safe to drink, Lee County will issue an alert that the boil notice has been lifted.

The situation occurred because of damage to a 4-inch water main near Prescott Street and San Carlos Boulevard.

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.

To ensure safe drinking water, Lee County Utilities will keep the affected area under the boil notice until bacteriological testing shows the drinking water is safe, normally taking 48 to 72 hours to complete

The county directed Fort Myers Beach residents and business owners to monitor local media outlets and also check leegov.com, www.leegov.com/utilities or follow Lee County Government on Facebook. Residents and business owners on Estero Island were also urged to follow the Town of Fort Myers Beach’s Facebook and website for updates or visit www.fortmyersbeachfl.gov.
