Lee County utility customers may notice temporary change in taste, odor, color

May 8, 2013
Fort Myers Beach Bulletin, Fort Myers Beach Observer

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.
