GADSDEN COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) - Gadsden County has issued a county-wide burn ban and a precautionary boil water notice has been issued for Pat Thomas Park in Quincy, Fla.
Gadsden County has issued a county-wide burn ban. Gadsden County residents are being asked to move storm debris to the curbside in order to be picked up.
The county will be providing a schedule for debris pick up as soon as it is available. Storm debris will not be picked up on private property and must be placed properly at the curb.
They are asking residents to keep separate piles for yard debris, construction and demolition debris including furniture, appliances and electronics, and to not place bagged yard waste in debris piles.
On Wednesday, Oct. 10, Pat Thomas Park experienced a water outage due to loss of pressure as a result of area storm damage from Hurricane Michael.
As a precaution, the county is advising that all water used for drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth, or washing dishes be boiled. A rolling boil of one minute is sufficient and using bottled water is an alternative.
The precautionary boil water notice will remain in effect until residents are notified that a bacteriological survey shows the water is safe to drink.
