The City of Fort Myers (City) is pleased to announce the planning and construction of a series of new raw water source wells to supplement the existing City wellfield. Additional raw water production wells are necessary to replace older or underproducing wells and to meet the increasing potable water demands of the growing population. The City has adequate water treatment plant capacity but will need to construct additional facilities to meet projected raw water demands of 2025 and 2030.
The City has identified and is planning for the new water supply sources and facilities needed to serve existing and new developments within the City limits.
What is raw water? Raw water is ground water that has not yet been treated for drinking use.
