Due to record rainfall, parts of Carrabelle’s sewer system have been down since Monday.

City officials said the sewer system serving Avenue C and 12th Street East, has failed. Heavy rains have infiltrated the system through storm drains.

People living on Avenue C or 12th Street East should not shower or flush the toilet to avoid contaminated water backing up into your home. Do not use washing machines or dishwashers. Turn off automatic sprinkler systems.

City officials said the water and sewer crew has been working round the clock since Monday to try and remedy the problem.
