Precautionary Boil Water Notices are placed into effect when pressure in a water main drops below 20 psi. This usually occurs during a water main break or a scheduled shut-off for utility repairs.


If Your Area Has Been Placed Under a Boil Water Notice

Boil Water Notice Hotline - 239-533-8575

To ensure safe drinking water, Lee County Utilities places the affected area under a boil water notice until bacteriological testing shows that the drinking water is safe. These tests usually take 48 to 72 hours. You may call the Boil Water Notice Hotline at 239-533-8575 for more information after 4:30 p.m. each day thereafter, as needed, to get the current status of any Boil Water Notice.
