Managing a Flooded Well

If you live in an area susceptible to flooding or if your have experienced flooding

recently, there are a few things you should know about your drinking water supply.

Important advisories that should be followed after a flood:

• Do not drink or wash with your well water. Your private well may be in

danger of contamination from pollutants carried by flood water.

• Do not turn on the well pump. There is a danger of electrical shock and

damage to your well or pump if they were flooded.

Contact your well professional for help in dealing with the impacts of the flood on your

water quality and well system.

You should suspect water contamination any time your well casing becomes flooded; if

your well is shallow and you are near areas that have been flooded; or if you notice taste,

color or sediment changes in your water. Flood conditions can allow bacterial, viral, parasitic,

or chemical contamination to enter the top of your well or seep down along your well's

casing. Even if flood water did not rise over the top of your well casing, your neighbor's well

may have been flooded, allowing contamination to migrate underground to your well.

If you suspect your drinking water is contaminated, find an alternative source for

drinking, cooking and washing. You can get water from a neighbor's well you know is safe or

from a community water supply, or you can purchase bottled water. If you can't find a

convenient source of safe water, boil your well water before use. Boil the water vigorously for

If you live in an altitude greater than one mile above sea level, increase boiling

time to three minutes. For more information on boiling your water, see our wellcare®

information sheet What You Need to Know if You Are Told to Boil Your Drinking Water.

Patented submersible pump check valve for use on

variable flow demand (VFD) systems and applications.

Standard check valves will

“chatter” and be noisy when

the system goes to low flow,

causing eventual failure. The

unique valves are designed to

minimize flow losses and hydraulic

shocks in the pumping

system. The exclusive patented

poppet system ensures that the

valve smoothly and automatically adjusts to flow changes

and is noiseless at even very low flows. Ideal for all

applications including non VFD systems.
