Floodwater-Contaminated Septic Systems, Water Wells and Small Water Systems

Some Rio Linda residences and businesses use private septic systems, water wells and other small water systems that can be contaminated by floodwater.

If you suspect that your septic, water well or small water system has been compromised by floodwater, it is important for health reasons that you take the following precautions:

Water wells and small water systems:
• Do not use or drink flood-contaminated well water.
• Have your water tested by certified well water testers – http://www.emd.saccounty.net/EH/Document…
• Disinfect the water well system – http://www.emd.saccounty.net/DisasterRes…
• Avoid contact with any electrical that could have been flooded until it is dry.

Septic Systems
• Do not use the septic system until floodwater has drained lower than the tank.
• Avoid contact with any electrical that could have been flooded until it is dry.
• If you suspect damage, have the septic tank inspected by a licensed contractor – http://www.emd.saccounty.net/EC/Document…

If you have questions regarding septic systems and water wells that have been exposed to floodwater, contact the Sacramento County Environmental Compliance Division, 916-875-8400.
