Well owners on alert after flooding

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is urging private well owners to think twice about drinking their water without testing it first after melting snow and rainfall caused flooding in northeast Wisconsin this weekend. Changes in color, smell, or taste could occur if flood waters get near or into wells because of the contaminants it could carry. Cindy Euclide from Euclide Well Drilling in Brussels says testing and disinfection is a must before you use your well for drinking or cooking.


Even if your home has some kind of water disinfection or purification system, Jim Simonar from Lemens WaterCare in Luxemburg still advises private well owners to tread with caution. 


No more rain is in the forecast for the area, but high temperatures above freezing are expected to stick around through the end of the next week to help the remaining snow melt even more.
