Boil Water Alert

GADSDEN COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) — A precautionary boil water notice was issued Tuesday for Talquin Electric members in the Gadsden County area.

The boil water notice applies to members in the Gadsden Regional Water System Area including locations at 2700 Providence Rd, Carolina Rd, Liberty Rd, Blount Rd, Ridgewood Rd, Juniper Creek Rd and Pine Cone St.

Talquin Electric is telling those residents to bring all water to a rolling boil, let it boil for one minute, and let it cool before using it for drinking or cooking.

In addition, they said the system may experience discolored tap water due to shifting sediments in the water main.

They also advise washing clothes with discolored water may tint or stain garments, so make sure to run water from an outside spigot or bathtub faucet to assure that water has been flushed before operating appliances. If sediment is present in the water, let it settle before drinking.
