Water shortage warning for Lee and Collier counties

Published: Updated:

The South Florida Water Management District has growing concerns about the water supply in Lee and Collier counties.

The shortage is due to less rainfall than normal.

Everyone is encouraged to save water where they can.

The water district wants you to check your sprinkler times, rain sensors, find and fix any leaks around your home, reduce the number of times you do laundry, run the dishwasher and take shorter showers.

The water district said this is right now only voluntary.

If it gets worse, they will then make it mandatory.
