MADISON, Wis. - The
Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is warning people the spring thaw
could contaminate their wells and drinking water.




DNR officials say
flood waters and runoff contain bacteria and other contaminants. Wells located
in pits, basements and low-lying areas are particularly susceptible.



Well owners should
watch for signs of flooding and any change in their water's smell, color or
taste. They also should conduct annual tests for bacteria and nitrates.



Well owners who
suspect contamination should find an alternate water source, disinfect the well
and sample the well before resuming consumption.
