Lee County Utilities will be temporarily converting its disinfectant process from chloramines to free chlorine residual from May 1-29.

It is a routine measure common among water utilities that use chloramines as a primary disinfectant.

Anyone who uses a kidney dialysis machine at home should contact his or her equipment supplier so the proper filtering equipment can be installed in advance.

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.

It is a routine, precautionary measure to ensure Lee County Utilities customers of clean, safe potable water.

Customers with questions can call 239-533-8845 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Lee County Utilities is one of about a dozen public and private utility organizations that serve residents and businesses in Lee County.
