Flooding turns to clean-up
PRINCETON — Clean-up continues after the heavy rains and flooding that soaked Bureau County last week, leaving hundreds of basements flooded throughout the area. Along with that clean-up, comes some health alerts from area officials.
On Friday, the Bureau/Putnam County Health Department issued a health alert for residents as they clean up their flooded basements. Health risks from flooded basements include potential sewage infiltration and mold development from the moisture. Health department officials recommend drying out items and areas as quickly as possible and cleaning them with soap and water then a bleach solution.
The local health department has now expanded its health alert to people with private wells.
