A precautionary boil water alert issued Nov. 16 for Sanibel Island from Tarpon Bay Road to Lighthouse Beach has been rescinded after a bacteriological survey showed that the water is safe to drink.

A precautionary boil water alert issued Nov. 16 for Sanibel Island from Tarpon Bay Road to Lighthouse Beach has been rescinded after a bacteriological survey showed that the water is safe to drink.

The alert came after a large-diameter water main on Periwinkle Way sustained major damage during a bridge repair project near Limpet Drive.

The damage resulted in a loss of water pressure in service territory extending from Tarpon Bay Road east to Lighthouse Beach.

If you have any questions, you may contact IWA’s main office at (239)472-1502.
