Black Water Damage after a Storm
Sometimes during a bad storm or flood, sewage water has no place to go and will start coming up through the toilet, bathtub, sinks, and other areas with pipes. This water is considered very hazardous and is called, "Black Water".
Category 3 water is grossly contaminated and could cause severe illness or death if ingested and any contact should be avoided. Examples include flooding from rivers or streams, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilet bowl with feces, or standing water that has begun to support microbial growth.
- May contain untreated sewage, harsh chemicals, and microbes
- Water from flooding rivers or sewer backup
