(North Fort Myers – Pine Lakes Community) The Florida Governmental Utility Authority (FGUA) has scheduled an interruption of the water service for all homes located in the Pine Lakes Community to allow for replacement of a mainline backflow prevention device. Every effort will be made to complete the work as quickly as possible to restore water service. We anticipate the time-of-service restoration to be at approximately 3:00PM. Notice will be delivered by door hanger and call notification to all affected customers.
Following restoration of water service, a Precautionary Boil Water 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 Thursday, November 9th, 2023.
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) 543-1005.
