Health Inspectors Help Residents After Flooding in Delta
Submitted by Joan Mays, CPHI(C), BASc
Supervisor of Health Protection Department
Seasonal melting combined with heavy rains last spring led to the worst flooding in Delta in 50 years.
Health inspectors quickly responded to this urgent situation by distributing water test bottles door-to-door, along with information on dealing with flooded wells and septic systems.
The Health Unit has prepared a pamphlet called “Keeping Your Well Water Safe to Drink”, which was distributed at the Delta Maple Syrup Festival. Copies are available through the Health Unit.
