E. coli

Post by Aura on Thu Feb 17, 2011 3:53 pm

Well I just found a notice by the front door saying that the "boil water advisory" has been lifted. Shocked I never got a notice to boil water! And of course now I'm worried. Apparently there was a possibility of contamination of E. coli. We were supposed to be boiling our water since Monday and it was lifted last night, Wednesday night.

Tuesday I did several large water changes, so I'm wondering what I should do. I used lots of water that might have contaminants in it. Do you think this is something to worry about or would all of that fishy water probably have stuff like e coli in it anyway?

I suppose the fish tanks won't matter if I succumb to E. coli. Sad I'm just waiting for the bloody diarrhea to set in. I really wish I had seen the first notice. That day was extremely windy and I'm guessing it blew away.

That's pretty scary, don't know if it effects fish or not.

I'm the only one home this week, but no poop storms, Derek. Smile I think it's probably okay. The didn't say there was actual contamination, but just a possibility. I did freak out when I saw the all clear note when I never knew there was a problem. pale
