LEHIGH ACRES, Fla. - The Florida Governmental Utility Authority (FGUA) has issued a precautionary boil water notice advisory as of Tuesday evening (October 1st) at 6:30 p.m., to Lehigh Acres Utility System Customers.
Approximately 500 customers located on the following streets in Lehigh Acres are affected: Beth Stacey Boulevard, Woodward Court, Broad Street and Westminster Road.
Door hangers are being delivered to customers. Service is expected to be restored by Wednesday, October 2nd, by 12:00 p.m. Following the repairs, samples of the water are taken to a Florida Department of Health certified laboratory and the notice will be lifted once test results come back showing the water is safe to drink.
The FGUA provides a Boil Water Notice Advisory under Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) requirements in the event that water pressure drops below 20 pounds per square inch in the service area. In the meantime, the FGUA advises that all water used for drinking or cooked be boiled. A rolling boil for a period of one minute is sufficient to ensure the water is free of possible bacteria or viruses. Alternatively, bottled water may be used.
