e. coli http://wfpl.org en Frequent Combined Sewer Overflows Continue in Jeffersonville http://wfpl.org/post/frequent-combined-sewer-overflows-continue-jeffersonville <p>In the past three months, Jeffersonville has had eight combined sewer overflows, or CSOs. This is when water levels rise and the city&rsquo;s sewer system releases untreated sewage and wastewater into the Ohio River so it doesn&rsquo;t back up into people&rsquo;s homes. The releases pollute the river and spread E. coli bacteria.</p> Tue, 03 Jul 2012 20:05:58 +0000 Erica Peterson 897 at http://wfpl.org
