Document That Your Well Is Decontaminated After Flood Drying Completes

Sep 5, 2008
New Orleans cannot catch a break, There have been tales of rushing water as steep as ten feet swamping a number of districts. Just like Katrina, Gustav did some damage. The better part of the inhabitants in these places usually get their water from the Ocean itself. With floodwaters deluging the facilities all over much of the water making ability has been taken away and the areas made septic. There are a few things that can be done to sanitize things when that has happened.

The steps that a municipality follows and must document is very similar to that you, a homeowner, would follow should your local water or water well be contaminated.

The best move to sterilize your drinking water is to first shut the electricity to your pumps off at the main electricity box. Dress in proper clothing (gloves, mask, eye protection) Open the door to the breaker room and review the wiring and connectors for any damage. After mending any troubles with the wiring, you can move onto the disinfecting phase.

Chlorine might be made use of as a germicide to deal with germs in the water in a drinking well. Make certain to wear the mask protector and latex hand gloves when working with chlorine. Judge the level of water that is still in the well. Shut the channel valves to hold bleach apart from water softener and different treatment machinery. This equipment should be disinfected by itself in because chlorinated products such as the bleaching agents we are discussing could harm and damage them.

The succeeding step to fix the well is to acquire a Drying hose from an exterior spigot and twist it on. Run the water hose in the well framing into and have it flowing until the scent of a chlorinated agent is marked in the water becoming visible out of the hose. Twist off the hose and go into the house.
Open all the cold water faucets. The outside ones too. Run the water out of these spigots until the aroma of chlorine is distinct in the water coming out of every faucet, then shut off the taps. Do not do anything more for some twenty-four hours before you turn any of the spigots on once more.

When the time is up get a hose connected to an outdoors spigot a ways off from where you are, be sure to let it run until the aroma of the chlorinating agent is no longer noticeable. The well and water assemblies should now be decontaminated and set to be used.

The bleach per water ratio should be around seventy-five percent of a quart of bleaching agent per 100 gallons of water to 2 quarts of bleach per 100 gallons of water. Always be sure to use the proper amounts.

Have the drying water examined 7 days or so after the effort for germs. Make sure the water is clean and pure. Any additional work is a job for a licensed and certified lab as disinfecting only removes the microorganisms in the water.

Now and then, insect repellents and additional chemical contaminants might reach the well water after a flood.

If there is any speculation as to if you well is clean call an adept person to complete the task to remove the germs. That's what the cities and other municipalities do to get their water systems clean.
