North Fort Myers
Residents of Pine Lakes Country Club Community
The FGUA currently purchases water from Lee County Utilities in order to provide water service to the Pine Lakes Community. Lee County Utilities will be temporarily converting its disinfectant process from chloramines to free chlorine beginning May 1st through May 29th, 2013. This is a routine measure to ensure customers have clean and safe potable water. In addition, Lee County Utilities will be notifying dialysis labs in your service area so that they can prepare for this change.
If you are on home dialysis, we encourage you to contact your physician or dialysis provider to make sure you understand the proper steps you should take to de-chlorinate the water before it is used in the dialysis process. Customers who have fish tanks or aquatic species are advised to contact a professional aquarist to avoid any problems associated with free chlorine. For questions regarding the change in the disinfectant process, please contact Hank Barroso, Lee County Utilities Water Operations Manager at 239-567-2181 or at email@example.com for additional information.
