Public health problem in Platter Creek

The Envi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion agency has sent a notice to Defi­ance County about E. coli test­ing in Plat­ter Creek which is prompt­ing a health depart­ment inves­ti­ga­tion. The EPA said a test of Plat­ter Creek dis­cov­ered “ele­vated” E. coli lev­els, and that the color of the water and odor sug­gest a nearby sewage prob­lem. The let­ter said the prob­lem appears to come from Mark Cen­ter and is a pub­lic health nui­sance. The EPA gave com­mis­sion­ers 30 days to explain how the prob­lem will be fixed.
