TALLAHASSEE, Fla.-- There is a precautionary boil water notice in effect for Talquin Electric water members in the Gadsden County service area. 

The area includes HWY 90 10/90 area, the Rustling Pines Subdivision, Highbridge Rd, Old Federal Rd, Spooner Rd, Hosford Hwy, Ben Bostick Rd, Sawdust Rd and Atlanta St.  The notice is due to the inclement weather, and only members of Talquin Electric Cooperative in this area are affected.
