CAPE CORAL, Fla. — Cape Coral city crews worked for nearly 10 hours to restore water service after a main break was reported Monday morning.

An alert was issued around 11 a.m. after the break was reported on the 2100 block of Everest Pkwy.

It was originally estimated repair work would take eight hours.

County officials advised affected parts of the neighborhood (highlighted in the map here) to boil water for one minute before use or to use bottled water until the advisory was lifted.

The boil water rule applies to water that will be used for drinking, cooling, ice making, washing dishes, and brushing teeth.
