E. coli found in Vero drinking wells

VERO BEACH, FL (WFLX) - The city of Vero Beach had to shut down one of its drinking water wells after a sample showed there was E. coli inside.

The sample was collected two days ago inside a well before the water went through any treatment or disinfection.

City leaders urge residents not to worry though, and say you don't have to boil your water at this time.

More samples will be taken until the well is safe again. Until then, it'll remain offline.
