The reFRESH Fort Myers Beach Waterlines Project is underway to replace the old, unreliable water infrastructure with a new water system that is dependable and able to handle existing and increasing demand on the island. The project consists of work being done along Estero Boulevard in coordination with the reFRESH Estero Boulevard Project as well as four phases for replacement of waterlines, storm drainage and outfalls on side streets off of Estero Boulevard.
The project began in 2011 when the Town of Fort Myers Beach completed water main replacement for North Estero Boulevard. In 2015, the Town completed installation of new water mains in Basin Based Neighborhood, Bay Beach Lane and Laguna Shores. In early 2016, new water mains on Estero Boulevard from Times Square to Red Coconut RV Park were installed. The project will continue along Estero Boulevard and various side streets.
New water system will be able to handle increasing demand
Old materials will be replaced with reliable material to prevent frequent line breaks
