Irma Lake Information

  • Lake County schools are closed Monday and Tuesday.
  • A boil water notice has been issued for Astor, FL by the St. John River Utility Corp. The Florida Department of Health in Lake County recommends one of the following:
    • Boil water before use, holding it at rolling boil for at least one minute before using it for drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth, or washing dishes.
    • Disinfect water by adding 8 drops (about 1/8 tsp – this would form a puddle about the size of a dime) of plain unscented household bleach (4 to 6% strength) per gallon of water, and then let it stand for 30 minutes. If the water is cloudy after 30 minutes, repeat the procedure once. If high strength bleach is used (8.25% strength), add 7 drops.
    • Use a container that has a cap or cover for disinfecting and storing water to be used for drinking. This will prevent contamination; or
    • Use bottled water, especially for mixing baby formula.
