Deadly E.Coli Traced To Private Wells.

The title of this blog is the actual title used in the newspaper article printed in the Irish Mirror of Friday, 6th June 2014..

The complete article is reproduced below:

Nearly a third of private wells in Ireland are contaminated by E.coli, putting children at risk of fatal kidney failure, health bosses warned yesterday.

Up to 30% are infected with the bacteria caused by animal or human waste the Environmental Protection Agency said.

A HSE report has also shown Ireland has the highest rate of Verotoxigenic E.coli in the whole of Europe.

HSE specialist Dr Una Fallon said "VTEC is a nasty water borne illness. The infection is most common in children and in up to 8% of cases patients go on to develop kidney complications. These can prove fatal.

This is all preventable".

More information from the EPA report:

All I can do is repeat our previous exhortation for well owners to have  tests carried out immediately.

It is not uncommon, in my experience, for wells to be tested on completion of drilling and never again. Testing is only required where local council grant funding is sought and a requirement for obtaining the grant aid is an analysis prior to the installation of a water treatment system and a follow up test after the water system had been installed.

Even if this is done wells should be tested annually. Water sources change and clearance today will not guarantee long term compliance with water standards.

Take samples in a suitable container and get them to your local testing centre as soon as possible., sooner if you can.

Depending on the results, indicated by each single parameter, which will show any contamination that exceeds EPA standards, call us or your local water treatment specialist to act on the data provided.

Stay safe and more importantly protect your family's health.

Once you enter in the word home remodeling, a directory of keywords are going to be pulled up to suit your needs that are related to the profiles of users who listed home remodeling among their interests. There are also players inside the field too, however these giants continue to be leading the pack. Facebook is attempting to drive because of this design given that they want to create Facebook.

First off I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I've had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Thank you!

Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
