As a result of recent storms, residents are experiencing flooded wells, sewage spills, and sewage back-ups.

Any and all areas containing sewage should be remediated as soon as possible in order to maintain a healthy living environment. Thorough cleaning of indoor sewage spills is necessary to protect people and pets from harmful bacteria and viruses. Clean-up must begin as soon as possible to reduce the risk of exposure to sewage and to prevent mold growth.

For information on cleaning up sewage, check out the Sewage in Baseline Spill Cleanup Guidelines and the Sewage Back-ups Fact Sheet.
