Heavy Rain/Water Supply
With the recent rash of heavy rain and more in the forecast, the Virginia Health Department wants those people having wells and septic tanks to use precautions. They say the floodwaters could contain sewage, agricultural, and industrial waste. If you own a well, you need to cease using the water if the well has flooded or may have flooded until you have it tested. For septic systems, check to see if the septic system is exposed or damages. Flooding can cause a septic system to back up the sewage into a home. The department says if you come into contact with either of these contaminated water sources be sure to disinfect yourself and anything exposed to it with plenty of chlorine bleach. (CC)
