Could the streams and rivers in Daviess County Jentucky be dangerous to your childrens health? One area environmentalist says 17 streams in the county have levels of E-Coli testing through the roof. Lee Dew has been testing the waters in Daviess County for eight years. He says his most recent tests are off the charts with E-Coli bacteria. One of the highest contaminated spots is the well known and well used Yellow Creek Park. Its a great place to take hike, ride a bike or just enjoy nature, but the beauty of Yellow Creek Park may be hiding something deadly. "Consistently it shows extremely high levels of E-Coli bacteria." Lee Dew monitors Daviess Countys creeks and rivers for the Sierra Club. He says this area of Yellow Creek near the iron bridge has such high levels of E-Coli the lab couldnt even measure it. "We dont know what strain of E-Coli weve got, but we know weve got lots of it." Its running through a well traveled area and right next to a picnic table. The park was created with amenities to get people in touch with nature like these stairs that lead directly to the creek that Dew says is contaminated. E-Coli is commonly found near pastures or farms where manure gets into the water. "Where this little creek is there arent any pastures or hog farms." Dew says here the problem comes from humans. The source is from septic tanks in all probabilities. Dew brings his findings to the county yearly. Last year he says they put up signs warning of the contamination. "They were paper and they lasted 2 or 3 days." He says the solution is getting sewers to the rural developments using septic tanks, but doing that is up to the county. When Dew took his most recent findings to the fiscal court today they said they would get with the states Division of Water to discuss what can be done to fix the problem.
