Information for You

Water that is contaminated with fecal coliform, or E.coli bacteria, can cause health problems if ingested and should be disinfected before use.

Dry cleaners use chemicals to clean clothes and other fabrics. When these chemicals are breathed in, they can be harmful to your health. They can remain in the environment for decades.

Water may not be safe to drink, cook or clean with after an emergency such as a flood.

Everyone with asthma – especially children and teens – should have an up-to-date Asthma Action Plan. This is a written plan that you fill out with your or your child’s doctor to help control asthma and know what to do in emergencies.

Manufacturers who use chemicals designated by the State of Vermont as Chemicals of High Concern to Children, must report information about these chemicals to the Health Department.
