Lee County Utilities will be temporarily converting its disinfectant process from chloramines to free chlorine residuals from May 1st through May 29th, 2014. 

This is a routine measure that is common for water utilities using chloramines as its primary disinfectant.

Anyone who uses a kidney dialysis machine at home should contact his or her equipment supplier so the proper filtering equipment may be installed.

Tropical fish or aquatic animal owners should contact a local tropical fish store for appropriate pretreatment of water before adding water to tanks.

Customers may notice a temporary change in the taste, odor, and color of the water, which is not harmful.

Again, this is a routine precautionary measure to ensure our customers of clean, safe potiable water.

Please feel free to contact our office during regular business hours at 239-533-8845, if you have any questions.

Three Oaks Wastewater Treatment Plant Wins

2014 FWEA Earle B. Phelps Award

Lee County Utilities Three Oaks Wastewater Treatment Plant wins the statewide Earle B. Phelps Award. 

This award is given annually by the Florida Water Environment Association (FWEA) to recognize the wastewater treatment facility that has maintained the highest removal of major pollution causing constituents prior to discharging the treated effluent to receiving waters.  Fiesta Village won in the Secondary Treatment category.   

The award was based on such criteria as the previous twelve (12) months of the facility’s monthly reports, the flow-weighted monthly and annual average effluent and effluent concentrations with the associated percent removal of each parameter identified in the award criteria and a schematic diagram of the treatment facility’s operation or process. 

Three Oaks’ staff accepted the award in Orlando on April 8, 2014 at the Florida Water Resource Conference.
