LaBELLE, Fla. -- A precautionary boil water notice has been issued for the City of LaBelle water service area through Friday.

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 a water main break.

Water pressure fell to 17 psi for several minutes until the pumps recovered. Crews are repairing the beak and service is expected to be back to normal as soon as possible.

This notice is effective immediately and will be in effect until Friday, February 5, 2016 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.

For further information please call Joseph Thomas at 863-674-1145 or City Hall during regular business hours at 863-675-2872.
