Flood recommendations from the Carlisle BOH

The Board of Health reminds residents that if you have any concerns that your septic system or well was impacted from flooding, contact the BOH for assistance at 1-978-369-0283.

Wells can become contaminated with bacteria or other contaminants as a result of the speed and direction of groundwater flow. Consider having the water tested.

If your home has suffered damage, take pictures/video of the damage for insurance or disaster claims.
