The City of Fort Myers confirms there was a water main break west of I-75 in Fort Myers Monday morning. It continues to affect several businesses and communities in the area.

According to the City, crews with the public works department are in the process of repairing a 24-inch water main break near the interstate. It’s considered to be in an isolated area.

The City advises water being used for drinking, cooking, ice making, brushing teeth or washing dishes be boiled while the break is under repair.

This water main break impacts the following subdivision communities: Colonial County Club, Pelican Preserve, Kingsbridge, The Plantation, Botanica Lakes, Marina Bay, Arborwood Preserve, Reflection Isles, Heritage Palms, Summerset at Plantation, Lexington Palms at the Forum, Paseo and Olympia Pointe.

Residences and businesses in the vicinity of the break include:
