County Commissioners decided Tuesday to limit lawn watering to one time a day twice a week from midnight to 8 a.m. We are more than 6 inches below our normal rainfall for the year, and this is the dry time of year. Yesterday’s rains will of course help tremendously, but for how long?
Lehigh Acres has experienced dry conditions, and some have complained about well activity and their concern their wells could go dry. In fact, the Ellis Team is involved in one deal now where the seller must dig a $6,000 new well that has a bigger pipe and is deeper just to keep the deal alive. We are about 6 weeks away rom rainy season here in SW Florida, so any rain relief we receive now is welcome.
