Water used for drinking, cooking, brushing teeth and washing dishes needs to be brought to a rolling boil for one full minute. As an alternative, bottled water may be used. Fort Myers Beach Public Works in conjuction with the Lee County Health Department continue to sample our water supply to ensure that the water is free of bacteria and is safe to drink. A PRECAUTIONARY BOIL WATER NOTICE WILL REMAIN IN EFFECT UNTIL A BOIL WATER RECISSION NOTICE IS IN EFFECT. Please continue to monitor the local media and this website for updates.
