FREE WATER SAMPLE ANALYSIS
If you are currently or were experiencing any one of the following flood scenarios with your well you are eligible to receive a Free water sample analysis (coliform/nitrate screen):
1. If your well is currently submerged under flood waters. You should wait for flood waters to recede before collecting a water sample. First flush the well and plumbing by running a hose (not to septic system) for an hour or more until clear. Then the well and plumbing should be disinfected by a licensed well contractor prior to water sample collection.
2. If your well is not submerged, you should flush the well and plumbing by running a hose (not to septic system) for an hour or more until clear. Then collect a water sample.
3. If you are unsure the well was submerged, first flush the well and plumbing by running a hose (not to septic system) for an hour or more until clear. Then collect a water sample.
As a precaution do not drink or cook with your well water until you have lab analysis confirming no detects for total coliform bacteria or E. coli. You should assume your well water is contaminated if any one of these above conditions exist. You can use retail bottled water for cooking and drinking needs in the meantime. If the initial water sample is unsatisfactory we will allow one free retest for total coliform. If there are any questions, please contact the Lake County Health Department at 847-377-8020.
