Water contamination possible in Collier County

Water contamination possible in Collier County.
NAPLES, Fla. – A week after Hurricane Irma made landfall in Collier County, the county is facing health concerns with its water.
From flood water and damage done by Irma, the county has also suggested boiling all water used for cooking, cleaning and personal use.
"We’re doing very well," said Goce Sipinkocki, co-owner of Aqua Seafood and Steak on 5th Avenue.
Aqua has been open most of the week following Irma.
Sipinkoski said they’re well aware of the water notices and are not taking any chances.
"I have a meeting with my staff, and I tell them, ladies and gentlemen, we’re going to serve sparkling bottle water, or spring bottle water, so we’re safe," Sipinkoski said.
Aqua is one of only a handful of restaurants that has power on 5th.
Another is Caffe Milano, where the general manager there is also aware of the water concerns and said it’s also not serving tap water.
Collier County officials say to reach out to the county’s health department for sampling instructions if you’d like your water tested at home.
