Coliform found in Wilmington's water in July
By Mellany Armstrong

The mayor's office says coliform bacteria was recently found in Wilmington's drinking water, but that there's nothing to worry about.

The bacteria was found during routine sampling in July, and that 8 samples out of 154 showed the presence of coliform. The standard is that no more than 7 samples may show bacteria.

The mayor's office says repeat samples showed no bacteria, and that samples taken in August were in compliance.

City water users do not need to boil water or take other corrective actions, but if you have any questions, you can call the Department of Public Works at 302-576-3074.
