Playgrounds:
The recent floods may have affected the safety of playgrounds.

  • Physical hazards
  • Contaminants from flood water are unlikely to pose a risk, as germs do not live very long in sunlight and rain helps wash them away.
  • It’s always a good idea to wash your hands after being in a playground. If children play in the dirt, try to prevent them from putting dirt in their mouths.
  • If you see visible signs of chemical contamination, such as an oil sheen, do not use the playground and report this to the State of Vermont spills team: 802-828-1138.
