AgriSafe in Action: April, 2019
Health Spotlight:
Flood Associated Health Threats
AgriSafe Network advises caution during flood recovery. Floodwater can be contaminated by pollutants including sewage, human and animal feces, pesticides and insecticides, fertilizers, oil, asbestos, rusting building materials, and others. Although public attention is focused on property loss caused by floods, protecting your own health is more important.
