How Natural Disasters Affect the Water System

Natural disasters, including floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, and tsunamis, can disrupt and contaminate water supplies. Flooding and other disasters can damage drinking water wells and lead to well contamination from livestock waste, human sewage, chemicals, and other impurities.

Take the Necessary Precautions

Do not drink or come into contact with any water that is contaminated from a natural disaster until health authorities declare that the water is safe. During and after a natural disaster, especially flooding, drinking water may not be available or safe to consume. To be safe, do not use water to wash dishes, brush your teeth, wash or prepare food, make ice, or prepare baby formula if you suspect or have been told it is contaminated.

Your public water system is required to notify you if your drinking water is deemed unsafe. If your local water system is contaminated as a result of a natural disaster, you should avoid drinking or coming into contact with any tap water. Check with your local water system or public health organization during times of emergency and follow their instructions closely.

Ensure Your Drinking Water Is Safe

To ensure you have access to safe, usable water, we advise you follow the boil water order instructions given by your local public water system or health organization. Although, using bottled water is often the safest option.

If you have an existing water treatment system, you may need to have it serviced after a natural disaster has occurred to ensure it hasn’t been damaged. We’re committed to providing you with the help and information you need to ensure access to clean, safe water. For more information about water in your area, contact your local Culligan Man.
