Boil water notice issued

January 9, 2018
Lehigh Acres Citizen

The Florida Governmental Utility Authority has issued a Precautionary Boil Water Notice Advisory as of Tuesday at noon, to Lehigh Acres Utility System customers due to a 10-inch water main break at 5624 8th Street. Approximately 400 customers have been affected from Leonard Boulevard East to and including, Gunnery Road and along Lee Boulevard and Leonard Boulevard to include the West Minster Golf Community. Customers may have experienced low pressure or no water.

Repairs are currently under way. Services are anticipated to be restored by approximately 7 p.m. Following repair, samples of water will be taken to a Florida Department of Health-certified laboratory for testing. A notice to rescind the BWN will be issued once samples confirm the water is safe to drink. The rescind of the notice is anticipated by Friday, Jan. 12.

The FGUA provides a Boil Water Notice Advisory under Florida Department of Environmental Protection requirements in the event that water pressure drops below 20 pounds per square inch in the service area. In the meantime, the FGUA advises that all water used for drinking or cooked be boiled. A rolling boil for a period of one minute is sufficient to ensure the water is free of possible bacteria or viruses. Alternatively, bottled water may be used.

For additional information or updates, FGUA customers may contact the FGUA Lehigh Acres Utility Systems Customer Service Office at (239) 368-1615, or visit the FGUA web site at
