Pine manor trailer park in middletown, My mother lives there. I am not sure about all the steps that need to be completed, and what needs to be reported to whom. but they always have there water contaminated with ecoli. I called the pennsylvania health department, because something must be wrong that they are always putting notices on my moms door. oviously they are not taking the right steps for prevention, if with in 1 week the water is contaminated again. The pa health dept told me I would have to call the twnship. I called left a message,never heard anything back. I think because pine manor has it's own water system. since I called there has been about 4 or more occasions where the water that my mother drinks was contaminated.

Please note if cattle are fed on a diet that contains no chlorophyll or very low amounts of chlorophyll then this makes the intestinal tract increase, incorrect, bacteria, such as ecoli 0157 this can then infect other animals and humans and get into water ie streams cattle troffs indoor wintering sheds etc, and also dairy herds; can also infect sheep never mix grazing animals on concentrated land areas; andrew j langham

Antibiotics which may be used to treat E. coli O157 toxin infection include amoxicillin as well as other semi-synthetic penicillins, many cephalosporins, carbapenems, aztreonam, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, ciprofloxacin, nitrofurantoin and the aminoglycosides seek advice from doctor and ask if you may have sulphur tablets as well this compliments amoxicillin makes it more effective but not all the abovementioned alkalizing medicines;

amoxicillin is best treatment for e coli disease
if hospital available kidney rest is essential to prevent damage to kidney nehpron cells;
if no doctor avaiable or hospital and you were cut off from civilization green long leaf horseradish plant grows wild and is often found on garden allotments contains hydrogen peroxide which kills e coli bacteria and toxins; it works well for animals as well such as horses cattle sheep and pigs and even ducks and geese etc;

ecoli prevention; Do not eat undercooked meatburgers or other ground beef products. Cook all beef and hamburgers thoroughly. Make sure the cooked meat is brown throughout (not pink), and the juices run clear. Drink only pasteurized milk, juice or cider. Wash fruits and vegetables in salt water thoroughly, especially those that will not be cooked. Children under five years, immunocompromised persons, and the elderly should avoid eating un cooked vegetables. Make sure infected people, especially children, wash their hands carefully with soap after using the toilet to reduce the risk of spreading the disease. keep your fridge clean and work surfaces;
