South Seas updates on post-storm status, docking for marina – Sanibel-Captiva Islander

  • October 12, 2022

On Oct. 10, South Seas Island Resort provided the following updates for the community:
FGUA confirmed over the weekend that the lift stations look to be in good condition with an initial review. FGUA teams will be on the island to conduct deep dives of all the lift stations. It wants to get as many up and running as soon as possible starting with the north end and central area. FGUA is also bringing fuel to continue operating the plant on a generator.
The emergency response relief team’s equipment is on site. Officials were awaiting confirmation from Lee County as to when it will be set up, staffed and operational.
Island Water confirmed that the water service to the island is pressurized. However, it is at approximately 50 percent of normal flow.
The South Seas team assisted Verizon with unloading a major piece of equipment for the cell tower over the weekend. Further efforts to improve cell service continue. Service over the weekend was very good at times and others spotty.
The following are must-follow guidelines for dock access:
Email a request to Bob Walter at [email protected] A member of the team will log the request for the Lee County Sheriff’s Office and confirm via email. Email confirmation will be from Alex Pons at [email protected] You must arrange your own transportation to the north marina. It is a drop-off-and-go situation; there are many people and lots of moving parts. Boat captains will not be able to hang out all day taking up dock space. Information required with dock access request:
– Name
– Unit or home address
– Date of arrival to main marina
– Time of arrival
– Number of people arriving
– Captain, if applicable
Upon arrival, have your email approval and ID. Transportation to Captiva or the southern section of South Seas is not provided as the resort has limited resources due to the storm. There are people traveling up and down the resort and may offer a ride. If your captain allows, bring a bike or similar.
