Important Information: Well Water Testing

Vermont State Lab is overwhelmed, so here’s what to do:

1. Assume your well is contaminated.

2. Treat well using procedure outlined here: https://water.epa.gov/drink/info/well/whatto.cfm. You’ll need some bleach.

3. Test your well – test kits are available from many town’s health officers.

4. More FEMA information here: http://water.epa.gov/drink/info/well/whatdo.cfm

Thank you to the Mad-River-Valley-Hurricane-Irene Facebook Page for sharing this information.
