Due to a county-wide water service interruption, all municipal buildings and the Buggy Company Building are closed to the public for Monday, July 10, 2023.
The Sanford Water Filtration Facility detected a break in the water system around 3:00 a.m. on July 10. The break caused residents across Lee County to wake up without water or with extremely low water pressure.
Crews were immediately called in to find and repair the issue. After working diligently for several hours, the issue was found shortly after 8:30 a.m. and the repair process began.
The City's water tanks must refill before full water service will be restored. Therefore, many residents and businesses may still be without water until the tanks can fill.
