There is an effort in Elkhart County to help people with hazardous well water gain access to city water.
The county’s Redevelopment Commission has been looking at the situation with the water in the Prairie Creek Run neighborhood, according to the Elkhart Truth.
Monday, their findings were presented to the City Council along with a recommendation that city water be offered to residents in unincorporated areas of the city where septic system waste has been seeping into well water.
Lilac Street in particular was singled out, with eight homes in serious need of access to city water. Dozens of other properties around Lilac are also being discussed.
The City Council says further discussion is necessary.
