Boil water advisories in Port Charlotte, Fort Myers rescinded


A boil water notice in the Port Charlotte Service Area and a similar advisory for an area in Fort Myers have been lifted.

The Charlotte County Utilities Department declared the precautionary boil water notice July 3 for a portion of the Port Charlotte service area due to mechanical issues. The affected customers included all addresses between El Jobean Road North to Hillsborough Boulevard, and Flamingo Boulevard west to the Myakka River

The Port Charlotte boil order was lifted Saturday morning.

A boil water advisory issued for several subdivisions off Treeline Avenue was rescinded Friday morning. A bacteriological survey found that the water supplied to the area was now safe to drink.

Repairs being made on a 24-inch water main on Treeline Avenue prompted the alert Wednesday for several subdivisions.
