Alert Update 5.23.17: Change of Disinfectant in Water

Even though the conversion of disinfection will begin on May 29th it will take approximately one week for the service area to be converted from a free chlorine residual to a chloramines residual.

Lee Count Utilities will be temporarily converting its disinfectant process from chloramines to fee chlorine residual from May 1st through May 29, 2017.

This is a routine measure that is common for water utilities using chloramines as its primary disinfectant.

This notice is being furnished so you can evaluate the impact of this change on your operations or patients in advance of the 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

If you operate dialysis equipment or have patients on dialysis equipment, we urge you to contact your equipment supplier so you can install the proper water filters.

If your lab prepares reagent grade water, other forms of pre-treatment of the water may be necessary. Questions regarding aquariums may be directed to Lee County Utilities.

Please feel free to contact Lee County Utilities office regular business hours at 239-533-8845, if you have any questions.
