Notice To Lee County Utilities Customers
County Utilities will be temporarily converting its disinfectant process from
chloramines to free chlorine residual from May 1 through May 21, 2019. This is a routine measure that is typical for water utilities using chloramines
as its primary disinfectant.
who uses a kidney dialysis machine at home should contact his or her equipment
supplier so the proper filtering equipment may be
installed. Tropical fish or aquatic animal owners should contact a local
tropical fish store for appropriate pretreatment of water before adding water
to tanks. Customers may notice a temporary change in the taste, odor, and color
of the water, which is not harmful.
this is a routine measure to ensure our customers of clean, safe potable water.
Please feel free to contact our office during regular business hours at 239-533-8845, if you have any
questions. Or, go to Free Chlorine Flush FAQs for more information.
Please be aware of a recent change at Lee County Utilities. To ensure continuity of service for all customers, the utility is changing its practice to meet industry standards. Effective May 1, 2019, all seasonal residents requesting a temporary disconnection of service will have monthly base charges assessed for each service. Base charges cover the fixed expenses associated with the operations and maintenance costs for providing water and wastewater services.
If you have any questions, please refer to the Lee County Utilities Customer Service Operations Manual approved by the Lee County Board of County Commissioners April 16, 2019, located at http://www.leegov.com/utilities/customer-resource-center.
