A boil water advisory has been issued for a large area on the east side of Sanibel.

The Island’s Water Association says residents living in the area east of Tarpon Bay Road up to Lighthouse Beach are under a boil water advisory.

The water company says the notice was issued because a large diameter water main on Periwinkle Road was damaged during bridge repairs. This damage caused a loss of pressure in pipes further down the line.

Residents in areas under a boil advisory are asked to boil water for at least one minute before using it for drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth or washing dishes.

A boil advisory will remain in effect until repairs are made and the water is tested and deemed safe to drink.
