(Lehigh Acres ) The Florida Governmental Utility Authority (FGUA) is noticing customers residing along Arthur Avenue of a planned shutdown of water service on (Monday) August 8th 2022, at 9:30AM. The shutdown is necessary for a tie-in of an 8-inch water main to the Lee County School Board and Veterans Park School. 31 homes and businesses will be affected, including 10-12 Arthur Ave., 100-404 Arthur Ave., 11-27 Maryland Road, and the school at Veterans Park. All those affected will be noticed by door hanger. Every effort will be made to complete the work as quickly as possible and restore water services.
Following restoration of water service, the Precautionary Boil Water Notice Advisory will be in effect. During the Advisory, in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, customers are encouraged to bring water used for cooking or drinking to a rolling boil for at least one minute, enough to render water free of bacterial, viruses, or protozoa. Alternatively, bottled water may be used.
Water samples will be collected and taken to a Florida Department of Health-certified laboratory. Provided that the FGUA receives clearance for two rounds of water sampling results the FGUA will attempt to rescind the Advisory by Wednesday August 10th, 2022.
The FGUA apologizes for any inconvenience and appreciates your patience and understanding during this time. Please visit this page for any updates or contact the local FGUA Customer Service Office during regular business hours at (239) 368-1615.
