Estero BaySan Carlos Sewer Spill

Estero Bay was declared safe for swimming and fishing on Sunday after two days of normal test results following a sewage spill on San Carlos Island. Early Friday morning, 100,000 gallons of raw sewage from a broken 25 year old, 2-foot force main pipe spilled onto Main Street and into Estero Bay via a storm drain.

The spill caused Main Street to be closed between San Carlos Blvd and South St. for several hours. Lee County Utilities brought in septic trucks to transport the sewage until the break could be repaired late Friday evening.
