E. coli

About two months after a Utah wildfire stopped burning, testing has shown unacceptable levels of E. coli bacteria in most of the water that filters through the taps of the rural town of Panguitch.

Town manager Lori Talbot suspects the cause of the contaminated water supply is the fire because "we didn't have E. coli before the fire burned over the watershed."
