Flooding and Well Water Safety

This article was added Apr 10, 2017 2:20 PM

During a flood, there is an increased risk that drinking water wells may become contaminated with bacteria and/or any other contaminants that may be present in the flood water. Any well water, whether deep or shallow, can become contaminated when flood occurs. Homeowners are responsible for assessing the risk to their wells and should boil water used for drinking and cooking if the risk is high. More information

The Province of Manitoba offers private water system owners a subsidy for bacteriological analysis of their drinking water through Horizon Lab.
