CARMEL, Ind. (WISH) - Inspectors think they've identified the problem at Carmel's "Flowing Well."
Last week, water tests revealed the presence of contamination – E.Coli and coliform – in the water. So, the well had to be closed.
Wednesday afternoon, Carmel's Parks department told 24-Hour News 8 inspectors discovered “an apparent break in the distribution line,” a pipe leading to the public taps.
Carmel Utilities will test water samples at the wellhead on Thursday and Friday.
The Parks Department said, if those samples are free of coliform, “it will validate that the source water is safe.” If so, they “will begin replacing the pipes as soon as possible.”
But, that is not likely to begin until early next week at best. So, the barriers are likely to remain up – keeping the well off-limits – until sometime next week at the earliest.
