ENGLEWOOD Inclement Weather / Flooding, 4.15.07


It is imperative that universal precautions be used at all times. Universal precautions include heavy duty, waterproof boots, and gloves. Water proof pants are advised. Keep hands away from face and eyes. Launder and dry clothing.

After a major flood it is often difficult to maintain good hygiene during clean up operations.  To avoid waterborne disease, it is important to wash your hands with soap and clean running water, including rubbing your hands together vigorously for at least 20 seconds, especially during work breaks, meal breaks, and at the end of the work shift.


When doing clean up in a basement for example an EPA approved tuberculocidal solution, as noted on the label, or use a 1-10 oz. ratio solution of bleach and water.  Bleach should not be mixed with any other substance except water.

As a result of the rain and water levels, power outages have resulted in certain parts of the City and some residents have been trapped in their homes. Please be further advised, that Emergency Personnel are blocking off certain streets (Florence, Forest, etc...) and door to door inspections are being conducted to ensure the safety of residents on flooded streets.
