Disinfecting Your Private Well

Is your well flooded? Disinfect it before you drink it!

If your private well is flooded, do not use water from it until the following three things have occured:

  1. The floodwaters have receded from the well and your plumbing system.
  2. You have disinfected the well and your plumbing.
  3. You have sampled your water and received a lab report confirming that the disinfected water contained no harmful organisms.
