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A precautionary boil water alert issued Nov. 16 for Sanibel Island from Tarpon Bay Road to Lighthouse Beach has been rescinded after a bacteriological survey showed that the water is safe to drink.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