What's a little E-Coli among friends?

I am not urging people in the Lehigh Valley to get hysterical now, but I cannot understand why there has been so little concern expressed over Sunday's story about Little Lehigh Creek.

Tests by the Wildlands Conservancy, it was reported, found E. coli bacterial levels in the creek up to 10 times the state minimum for swimming. The creek also is a source for Allentown's drinking water.

The story said the state standard for pools and lakes is 235 units of E. coli per 100 milliters of water, and the tests revealed levels up to 517 in July and 2,420 in August.

The tests were initiated after a Morning Call review last year revealed that 33 million gallons of raw sewage had been dumped into the creek from 1999 to 2008.
No wonder people are whacked in Allentown.

A polluted creek should worry folks
