Flood waters or standing waters may contain potentially dangerous materials, such as sewage, agricultural runoff, and chemicals from industrial areas. Exposure to flood waters can also cause infections or result in injuries.

Buildings or facilities that have been damaged by or exposed to flood waters may also pose health risks from mold, chemicals, electrical hazards, and displaced animals.
