MATLACHA, Fla. — A precautionary boil water notice has been placed on 600 Pine Island Water Association customers in Matlacha and Cape Coral with immediate effect.

Utility officials say the affected area includes Matlacha Isles East and any Cape customers with PIWA accounts.

The cause is reportedly a loss of pressure at the reverse osmosis plant after a lightning strike Monday night.

Customers are asked to boil drinking and cooking water for a minimum of one minute before use or consumption.

A minimum of two days of testing is required by the Lee County Health Department before the notice will be lifted.
