So we have had huge rains for the last 4 days. Extreme rain. My water is now coming out slightly colored and leaving dirt in the tub. The water is getting clearer but still not clear. We have stopped drinking the water and no laundry or dishes to try and let things settle. I have been researching this and find that I may have a seal issue or contamination or my well could be part of an underground stream and thus... muddy water. I have been preparing for just in case SHTF and always thought I had water covered. Shallow well, generator, plus looking into a flo-jack pump or just hauling out. With this muddy water now what? It has kind of thrown me a curve ball cause I thought I had that aspect covered but now I know I need a back up plan. I think I relied to heavily on the fact that my well was a good one and never thought I could not use it.
