Boil water order for North Fort Myers in effect

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, 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.
