Is your home or business impacted by the current flooding?
We have information to protect your health in a flood event we will also provide free testing for private water wells in the flooded areas, once the flood waters have receded. Remember that flood water can be contaminated with bacteria, viruses and other organisms, avoid contact with flood water and keep children and pets from playing in flooded areas. If you come into contact with flood water and have an open wound, make sure your tetanus shot is up to date.
