First raw milk, now the water in Utah is making people sick.
The Salt Lake City Tribune reports that a boil-water advisory will remain in effect for residents of Northern Saratoga Springs (right, exactly as shown) after at least seven people were stricken by Campylobacter.
Saratoga police spokesman Cpl. Aaron Rosen said the city is awaiting test results on a well believed to be the source of a campylobacter outbreak in the city. The city is treating the water with chlorine to kill the bacteria.
Mount Olympus Waters dispatched a 6,000-gallon tanker truck to provide free water for residents. The tanker is parked at Walmart, at Redwood Road and State Route 73.
Larry Mullenax, Mount Olympus vice president, said the company will provide two one-gallon containers of water per person. But if people bring their own containers, the company will fill them for free.
Walmart employees are staffing the tanker from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., he said.
