Manure release contaminates section of Russell Creek w/e coli
Low flow may limit flow of e coli contamination
By Corey Patterson Environmentalist
Adari County Health Department
The Adair County Health Department received notice from the EPA, Division of Water, and the KY Department for Public Health that a manure release occurred in Russell Creek just south of the Sano Community in Adair County. The impacted section of the creek begins just downstream of the M F Huckaby Road bridge.
E. Coli samples collected at the Gentry Mill Road bridge indicated an E. Coli count of around 79,000/100ml.The distance downstream that has been impacted is variable. But based upon low flow of the creek at this time may also limit it. - Corey Patterson
