As the flood waters recede and we are able to get back in to our farms and ranches it is important to think about drinking water safety.  It is common for private wells to be immersed with the flood waters.  The flood waters commonly contain high levels of bacteria such as fecal coliforms and E. coli.  These microbes can cause short-term health effects such as diarrhea, cramps, nausea, headaches or other symptoms.  Infants and young children, some of the elderly and people with severely compromised immune systems may be more susceptible.
