Lee County Utilities will be temporarily converting its disinfectant process from chloramines to free chlorine residual from May 3 through May 24, 2021.

This is a routine measure that is typical for water utilities using chloramines as its primary disinfectant.

Anyone 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.

Again, 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, 8am to 4:30pm at 239-533-8845, if you have any questions.
