However, there is another aspect of water we need to consider…Too much of it in the wrong place.Too much rain in a short period of time will bring flooding, this can be devastating.
Flood waters contain Bacteria, Mircoorganisms, and possibly Raw Sewage. Water of this type is known as Category 3 or Black Water…It’s effects can be deadly.
