GOSHEN, Ind. (AP) — Test results for two northern Indiana communities show high levels of contamination in nearby waterways.
The Elkhart Truth reports that contamination was concentrated in two spots along Yellow Creek near Southwest and one spot along Yellow Creek near Foraker.
Officials say it is unclear what has caused such high levels at the testing locations but suspect faulty sewage systems near the communities could be contributing to the problem.
Solid waste, phosphorus and E.coli were reported found in both water sources. Officials warn residents not to go into the water because of the high concentration of contaminants.
