MAY 3, 2021 – MAY 31, 2021


Lee County will be temporarily converting its disinfectant process from chloramines to free chlorine residual from May 1, 2021 through May 31, 2021. This is a routine measure that is common for water utilities using chloramines as its primary disinfectant. Customers may notice a temporary change in the taste, odor, and color of the water, which is not harmful.

Even though the conversion of disinfection will end on May 24th, it may take approximately one week for the service area to be converted from a free chlorine residual to a chloramines residual 

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.

This notice is being furnished so you evaluate the impact of this change. Activities, which may be impacted by this change in treatment include but are not limited to the following:

  1. Operations of Kidney dialysis units
  2.  Preparation of reagent grade water in the clinical laboratory
  3. Operations of aquariums

Again, this is a routine precautionary measure to ensure our customers of clean & safe potable water. If you have any questions pertaining to this process or notice, please contact Lee County during regular business hours, 8:00am – 5:00pm, Monday – Friday at 239-533-8845 or toll free at 1-800-485-0214.
