The shutdown will affect up to 100 customers. Affected residents have been notified via phone, text, and email.

City officials said that crews aim to restore water service as quickly as possible. Most similar types of repairs are completed by the end of the day, they said, barring unforeseen circumstances.

Utilities must receive clearance from the Health Department before they can rescind the boil water notice.

Once the notice is rescinded, signs are posted at entrances to the affected area. Residents are also informed via call, text, or email.

Following the restoration of access to drinking water, users are advised to boil water for one minute or use bottled water as a precaution until the advisory has been lifted. The notification applies to water used for drinking, cooking, making ice, washing dishes, and brushing teeth.

More information can be found on the city's boil water notice page, on Boil Water Notices and you can find a list of Frequently Asked Questions at CapeCoral.gov.
