Refresh Waterlines Details

Town of Fort Myers Beach’s Waterlines Project

The reFRESH Fort Myers Beach Waterlines Project replaced 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 consisted 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 continued along Estero Boulevard and various side streets.

Key Improvements

  • New water system will be able to handle increasing demand
  • Old materials will be replaced with reliable material to prevent frequent line breaks
  • Water mains will provide better fire protection
