As Hurricane Florence makes landfall today with an unpredictable path, the Energy and Environment Cabinet would like to remind residents of how to handle storm and flood debris, should the storm bring bad weather to the commonwealth.
The Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection (DEP) has specific guidelines for
proper disposal of debris left in the aftermath of severe weather. DEP wants storm-affected Kentuckians to be aware of health, safety, and compliance hazards associated with debris handling and disposal.
These hazards include, but are not limited to, burning of debris, asbestos removal, and mold growth.
