Safe drinking water is a major concern following a flood or high water.
Iowa State University Extension reminds you to watch for signs of unsafe well water. If your well has been flooded or if you see cloudiness, dirt or particles in tap water, your well may need to be disinfected.
If you have questions, call your local Extension office. Extension also has free publications about drinking water precautions.
