FLAGLER COUNTY, Fla. — Flagler County officials are urging residents to limit water usage to emergency needs only as of Thursday afternoon.
Officials said limiting water consumption can help the overwhelmed sewer systems catch up.
The request applies to all of Flagler County, including city residents.
“We are now at emergency water usage only,” Bunnell City Manager Alvin Jackson said. “We have no storage for wastewater.”
Officials said the city of Palm Coast has many areas on an electricity-dependent PEP tank system, and other unincorporated areas are on septic systems.
Emergency Management Director Jonathan Lord said limiting water usage right now is “critically important.”
“We understand it is inconvenient but it’s for the good of the whole county,” he said.
