Boil Water Notice Lifted


The boil water notice previously issued for the Port LaBelle Utility Service area in Hendry County has been lifted.


The notice affected over 5,000 residents in the Port LaBelle area that spans over 11 square miles. Several schools, a hotel/restaurant and daycare facility were affected as well.


The notice was due to a temporary pump malfunction at the water treatment plant. Samples were immediately sent to the Health Department for testing. All samples have passed.
