Fort Myers will begin transitioning back to city-sourced water on June 15th

FORT MYERS – The City of Fort Myers has received drinking water since late-January from Lee County in order to satisfy unprecedented demand by an increase in population. This assistance from the county enabled the city to complete two new water wells, fill all water tanks to capacity, rehabilitate three existing wells, and begin planning a full expansion of water infrastructure citywide. At this time, the city is prepared to resume supplying water to our residents. The transition to city-sourced water will take place in the same three phases introduced in January; however, reconnecting to city-sourced water will occur in the reverse order outlined below.
