BOIL WATER NOTICE REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE - TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 14
Water service should be restored for most residents/businesses and a boil water advisory remains in place. Residents from Andre Mar to Sabal may continue to have limited water supply until all repairs are completed as this is closest to where the break on Estero was. The break was due to a contractor working near the main. Boil water remains in effect until further notice.

Water main break has caused the entire Town to have no water or a small amount of water pressure. A boil water notice is in effect until further notice.
Under a boil water advisory, it is recommended that water be boiled for several minutes in advance of consumption or use. Bring your water to a rolling boil for one minute to use water for:
Brushing your teeth
Washing your hands before eating
Washing dishes, cooking surfaces, raw foods, or rinsing food
Preparing other drinks like baby bottles, kool-aid, sun tea, ice tea, frozen juices etc.
Tips on boiling water
Fill a pot or pan with cold water.
Start timing after the water boils. (You may see little bubbles forming at the edges of the pot; these are just air bubbles from the water; when steady streams of big bubbles are sent up from the bottom of the pot, your water is starting to boil.)
Boil for one full minute.
Boil as much water in a pot as you can comfortably lift without spilling. Caution should always be exercised when handling boiling water to minimize the risk of burns.

REMINDER: BOIL WATER NOTICE REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. This is due to Saturday evening’s water main break. This is even though your water is fully restored.
When it is rescinded we will let you know by social media, website posts, and texts and emails, as well as send notice to media and request that they share it. Due to the water main break Saturday evening, the water needs to be tested a few times before the all-clear can be given.
