Well Disinfection Guidance 

Flooding, construction activities, electrical outage, high water demand resulting in low or negative water pressure, unscreened vents, and a variety of other factors can allow environmental contaminants to be drawn into a water system and result in presence of total and fecal coliform bacteria.


Owners of individual wells need to be aware of precautionary measures and how to disinfect and have their well water tested by a certified laboratory after their water system loses pressure or is inundated by floodwater.  Click below for additional information about how to disinfect wells and test for fecal coliform bacteria.
