Fred Partin, general manager of Bonita Springs Utilities, said security there was increased after Sept. 11 as well.
"We maintained pretty good security prior to 9-11," he
said."Certainly since then we've beefed up security, especially at the water plant." Bonita Springs Utilities
provides water to 16,000 households in a 50-square-mile area, with the capacity to treat 9 million gallons a day.
The assessment of Lee's plants will follow guidelines established by the Department of Energy's Sandia National Laboratories
will pay the bulk of the cost for the $118,210 assessment, with the county paying the rest through salaries and services.
