If you live in an area that was recently or is currently flooded, your private well may be in danger of contamination from pollutants carried in floodwaters. If your well cap is or has been underwater, you should assume that your well is contaminated.
If you suspect your drinking water is contaminated, you should obtain water from a known safe source for drinking, cooking and food preparation. You can get water from a neighbor's well you know is safe, from a community water supply or you can purchase bottled water. If you cannot find a convenient source of safe water, you can boil your well water for five minutes before use.
If you have any questions about your well or water quality, please call your local Board of Health or the MassDEP Drinking Water Program at 617-292-5770 during business hours. Use the following procedure to disinfect your well.
