BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – The Mahoning County District Board of Health has stepped up water testing in Mill Creek Park to see if the recent rain storm will have an impact on bacteria levels in the park waterways.
Ryan Tekac, director of environmental health with the Mahoning County District Board of Health, said extra water samples were taken early Monday morning. The district will also test again on Wednesday.
The lakes have been closed since June due to E. coli levels that are several times higher than the safety limit.
Results could be back as soon as Tuesday.
