Boil Water Precaution For LaBelle

LABELLE, FL. --   Residents of the City of LaBelle in the area bounded by Spratt Blvd. South and east of Cowboy Way are warned to boil water as a precaution.  Wednesday, July 11, 2012, between the hours of 8:45 a.m. and 10:45 a.m., the water service was shut off to this area, due to a water main break. 

The city of LaBelle apologizes for the incident saying they "are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause but this is a necessary action to improve service."

"Therefore, as a precaution, upon return of water service, we advise that all water used for drinking or cooking be boiled. A rolling boil of one minute is sufficient. As an alternative bottled water may be used."

This "precautionary boil water notice" will remain in effect until the problem has been corrected and the bacteriological survey shows that the water is safe to drink.

This boil water notice is expected to be effective until noon 7/13/12, unless you hear otherwise from this utility.

If you have any questions you may contact Joe Thomas, at 863-675-4684 or City Hall at 863-675-2872.
