Lee County Utilities will be temporarily converting its disinfectant process from chloramines to free chlorine residual from May 1 through May 29, 2013.
This is a routine measure that is common for water utilities using chloramines as its primary disinfectant.
Anyone who uses a kidney dialysis machine at home should contact his or her equipment supplier, so the proper filtering equipment may be installed.
Tropical fish or aquatic animal owners should contact a local tropical fish store for appropriate pretreatment of water before adding water to tanks.
Customers may notice a temporary change in the taste, odor, and color of the water, which is not harmful.
Again, this is a routine precautionary measure to ensure our customers of clean, safe potable water.
Please feel free to contact the Lee County Utilities office during regular business hours at 239-533-8845, should you have any questions.
