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
