Record high water levels and heavy rain fall have contributed to flooding in low lying areas and may cause septic systems to fail. If your drinking water comes from a well—test it immediately!
Did you know that:
- Sewage can contain harmful bacteria such as E.coli
- If you are experiencing flooding—test your well water immediately to make sure it’s safe to drink.
Bacteria can enter through:
- cracks in the wall of the well
- poorly fitted lids
- structural problems the well may have
