Lee County Utilities to convert disinfectant process for water treatment

Anyone who uses a kidney dialysis machine at home should contact an equipment supplier, owners of fish tanks should check with stores

By Staff | Apr 30, 2021

Lee County Utilities will be temporarily converting its disinfectant process from chloramines to free chlorine residual from May 3 through May 24.

 

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 an 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. This is a routine measure to ensure customers of clean, safe potable water.

Customers with questions can call 239-533-8845 during normal business hours, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
