what precautions are we supposed to take if we drank the water after 8:30 a.m. and before the story broke? I drank from a water fountain at S. Milwaukee H.S. and also made coffee with filtered tap water at about 9 am.

Why are the City of Milwaukee employees being told to conserve water and not drink it, but the residents are not being informed this. Is the water in South Milwaukee going to affect the water in Milwaukee? I think they need to let us know something, whether it will affect Milwaukee or not.

They said 20 inch pipe , not 20 foot pipe on TV. Inch sounds more likely for our little town.

From S.M.(not Cudahy)
If you have health questions about having drunk the water, call the health department or a DR.

The city of Milwaukee is not affected by So. Milwaukee's water problem.

The water supply pipe that broke is near our treatment plant, not our water tower.

We should not take showers. They also said to use hand sanitizer, but if you do wash your hands, use plenty of soap, not water alone.

We just stocked up on gallons of bottled water from Sam's Club.

I've been texting and emailing people about the water main break.

No. South Milwaukee has it's own filtration plant. St. Francis uses Milwaukee water.

News reporting in this area is completely sub-par. One question that needs to be addressed is the EXACT areas that are affected and their boundary lines.

We didn't know of the outbreak,we gave the kids juice and water from the faucet and also we all brushed our teeth with the water so are all freaked out,do they know for sure the water had e coli in it? I read online it takes 2-4 days for symptoms to show up that sounds like a long time no know if our kids have this.
