Residents are advised not to use their water if they have been flooded

The Town of Wolcott is advising any homeowner/renter who has received flood waters in their
yard, over their well head, or septic system not to use their water until it is tested.
Users should not use the water, even if boiled for drinking, cooking, brushing teeth, making
ice cubes, making baby bottles, or washing fruits and vegetables.

We are working on obtaining water testing kits.
