More Canyon County Water Tests Positive for E. Coli
In early August, five private wells in Nampa tested positive for E. coli. Further tests have found the bacteria in more wells.
According to Channel 2, two wells further away from the contaminated water in South Nampa have now tested. Southwest District Health has not revealed the exact location of the wells that have tested positive because they are private wells, but did reveal in an e-mail to the Idaho Press-Tribune that the initial wells testing positive were near Powerline Road and Locust Lane.
It's still unclear where the contamination came from and results of tests from the health district and DEQ won't be available until late October at the earliest.
If you have questions about the E. coli contaminated water in Nampa, reach out to the environmental division at the health district at 455-5400.
