Hurricane Irma Floodwater Alert

As a precaution, it is recommended citizens limit direct contact with standing water or any water body after heavy rains due to the potential for polluted runoff.

Hurricane Irma brought wind and rain resulting in flooding in some areas and power outages.  With these conditions, our waterways may not meet State water quality standards. Sewage overflows may occur with power outages and flood waters pick up contaminants from roadways, industry, agriculture and residential yards. In addition, sometimes septic systems and sewer systems become overloaded with storm water and/or rising groundwater. When this happens, wastewater may comingle with floodwaters.
