[ARCHIVED] Flooding and Private Wells


The Berrien County Health Department advises residents with water well systems to inspect the area around their well for flooding. If flood waters have impacted the well system, drinking water may become contaminated. If the well head is damaged, compromised, or has been submerged in flood water, residents should immediately discontinue use of the well water for drinking, cooking, and/or bathing and should use bottled water until their well system is safe for use again. After flood waters have receded, residents can contact the Berrien County Health Department at 269-926-7121 for more information on how to test their well water system for safety.
