FLOODING INFORMATION

Avoid contact with flood waters
The health department encourages all Lenawee County residents to avoid contact with the River Raisin or other flood waters.  Flood waters may contain sewage or other contaminants that may be harmful to public health.
Inspect wells
Homeowners should inspect their well for evidence of having been under floodwater.  If it has been under floodwater, it should be tested for contamination.  A list of testing sites are available [click here} Homeowners may opt to skip the testing procedure and have it disinfected either by a licensed well driller or by disinfecting it themselves.  Instructions are available [click here]
Use caution during cleanup
The health department urges all homeowners with flooded basements to use caution during clean up.  Avoid coming into contact with the floodwaters as the water may be contaminated by oil, gasoline or raw sewage.  Use rubber gloves and boots.  Throw out food that may have been in contact with the floodwater. More tips for cleaning up a flooded basement or home can be found at http://m.fema.gov/after-flood or http://tinyurl.com/q4bo9nx
