E. coli found in two Milo water districts

MILO--A boil water notice was issued in the town of Milo for water districts one and two, Friday, July 16, and lifted Sunday morning, July 18. The areas affected were from the village line to 614 East Lake Road, Bath Road, Airport Drive, Country Estates and Keuka View Drive, Keuka Shores complex and White Tail Lane.
The boil water notice was issued because Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacteria was found in the drinking water on July 14. The New York State Department of Health considers any confirmed E. coli positive sample as a public health hazard and a violation of drinking water standards.
The presence of E. coli bacteria indicates the water may be contaminated with human or animal wastes. Harmful microbes in these wastes, including E. coli, can cause diarrhea, cramps, nausea, headaches, or other symptoms. These may pose a special health risk for infants, some elderly, and people with severely compromised immune systems.
The town of Milo water department worked with health officials on flushing and retesting the water. The advisory ended at 10:58 a.m. on Sunday.
