UPDATE: At noon Wednesday officials said, "The City of LaBelle Precautionary Boil water notice is lifted effective immediately."
A precautionary boil water notice has been issued for the City of LaBelle water service area. All City of LaBelle water users are advised to bring drinking water to a rolling boil for at least one minute prior to consumption.
The notice is necessary due to an equipment failure. Water service was lost (pressure loss) to the city water service area due to an equipment failure. Service is back to normal. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
This notice is effective immediately and is expected to be in effect until Thursday, February 20, 2020 at 2:30 pm when a Bacteriological Survey shows the water is safe to drink or a different notice is issued regarding the boil water action.
