Maine CDC Offers Safe Drinking Water and Mold Decontamination Information

Flooding, like that we have recently experienced in southern Maine, bears a number of public health threats, the most important of which is probably contaminated well water.

When flood waters enter a well, contamination can be expected. The Maine CDC Drinking Water Program provides complete and easily understood information about the risks to wells from floods and their de-contamination. Household mold is also a significant risk and nuisance in flooded areas.

Information on flood-related public health issues including drinking water and mold issues is available at the following website: http://www.mainepublichealth.gov or by calling 287-2070.
