The recent floods in Colorado are a good example, with health officials warning local residents to take precaution due to the millions of gallons of sewage and thousands of gallons of oil that have been released throughout the state. Reports of E.coli contamination have also led several towns and districts to issuing boil water advisories as part of their emergency response plan.
