E. Coli Bacteria Found in Local Water Supply
A sample taken from the Daguscahonda Public Water System had failed a test for E. coli bacteria contamination, according to a statement from The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection on Tuesday. The DEP is recommending that all residents of Daguscahonda who receive their water from the public system begin boiling all drinking water immediately. According to DEP Northwest Region director Kelly Burch, the presence of E. coli bacteria is an indicator that the water may be contaminated with human or animal waste.
