The Florida Department of Environmental Protection Thursday morning approved lifting the citywide boil water notice in all areas of Fort Myers.

The following neighborhoods that had remained under the advisory Wednesday night were also cleared:

  • The Somerset @ Plantation subdivision
  • The Legacy Gateway subdivision
  • Heritage Palms subdivision
  • Residents and businesses within the boundaries of: Deleon Street on the east, Medical Lane on the south, Bowling Green Boulevard on the west, and Orangewood Avenue northward to Manor Avenue.

The aforementioned exceptions required additional bacteriological sampling before they could be cleared.
