Flooding and Private Well Water Contamination

Was your well affected by recent floods? New

Water associated with floods can be contaminated with bacteria, viruses, parasites, chemicals and physical hazards. As such, direct contact with flood water should be avoided. Depending on the severity of the flood, plumbing lines within your home may have become contaminated.

Since flooding is an abnormal circumstance, you should test your private well water supply to determine if it is safe to drink or use.
