KFL&A Public Health Reminds Well Uses to Regularly Sample Their Water supply
KFL&A Public Health is reminding well water users to regularly sample and test your water supply.
It's especially important after the sustantial amount of rainfall our area has experienced.
KFL&A Public Health says after a flood, water may not be safe to drink, clean with, or bathe in, and could be contaminated.
If that's the case for you, you should use boiled water until you can get your well tested, or use an alternate water supply such as bottled water for cooking or preparing food, making baby formula, washing dishes, cleaning, brushing your teeth, washing your hands, making ice, and bathing.
Also keep in mind that once the flood waters have receded, your well or cistern will need to be disinfected.
