A form of bacteria is causing problems for one Bedford County elementary school.
According to the superintendent, coliform bacteria was recently detected in the water supply at Montvale elementary.
A letter went out to parents on Friday about the problem
The school uses public water and the superintendent says no one's gotten sick.
Superintendent Jim Blevins says the problem is that Montvale Elementary isn't using enough water.
He says as the water sits in the water lines waiting to be used-- the chlorine in it loses its effectiveness.
The school plans to now flush the water lines once a week in hopes of resolving the problem.
In the meantime, students will be using bottled water.

Investigators believe Robert Flores gunned down three University of Arizona professors to get even with a nursing program that was flunking him.
SOT: Chief Richard Miranda/Tucson Police Department
I think It was Mr. Flores intention to create a holy hell in this community.
Just after 8:30 in the morning -- Flores marched into a classroom and ordered students - who were preparing to take an exam -- to leave or die.
Witnesses say the gunman then told three of his instructors to make their peace with God.
It ended when Flores turned the gun on himself.
SOT: Lyndsay Edwards/Student
"she started running and we're like what happened? And she said 2 of my professors were shot."
Finding Flores body lying on an ominous looking backpack - police evacuated the nursing school and brought in the bomb squad.
Nearly 12 hours later police determined there were no explosives in the building.
Instead investigators revealed that Flores was his own ticking time bomb.
University police officials say at least one instructor at the school had heard Flores talk about lashing out against the college as early as last year.
SOT: Chief Anthony Daykin/University of Arizona Police
conveyed to staff that he was depressed, wanted to end it all, and may want to action against the college of medicine.
The 40 year-old Gulf War veteran apparently was not only failing at school but was also grappling with a broken family as a divorced father of two children.
Fellow students described Flores as angry and aggressive.
(Jim Acosta/CBS News/Tucson, Arizona)
The university says Flores wanted to advance beyond his job as a licensed practical nurse to become a registered nurse. Troubled as he was it s still unclear why a man pursuing a career in saving lives instead took so many.

The two sniper suspects face capital murder charges in Virginia.
Yesterday, 41- year- old John Allen Muhammad and 17- year- old John Lee Malvo were indicted in Hanover and Spotsylvania Counties.
In addition to capital murder, the suspects are charged with terrorism in Hanover county.
Attorney General Jerry Kilgore say the shooting spree qualifies as terrorism under the state's new law.
Meanwhile, authorities say the suspects are also connected to the murder of a 21- year- old woman in Tacoma, Washington last winter.

An un-tended stove is to blame for a fire at an assisted living facility in Blacksburg.
Flames broke out just before seven yesterday morning inside an apartment unit at Warm Hearth Village.
Firefighters were able to contain the blaze to the kitchen area, so residents were allowed to go back inside.
Two minor injuries were reported--both were treated on the scene.

Fire officials say an electrical malfunction started the blaze at a Roanoke warehouse last week.
Evidence confirms the initial belief that it began in the basement. Total damages are estimated at 500-thousand dollars.
Because of contractual questions and structural issues, fire officials say for now, the remainder of the warehouse will not be demolished.
Salem Avenue has re-opened to drivers.
Norfolk Avenue will remain closed until all the debris is removed.
The new Land Rover dealership in Roanoke County is expanding, again... and it hasn't even been built yet.
The old Parkway Motel was torn down a year ago to make way for the dealership.
Now the Buck Mountain Grille- -which was once part of the motel- -will also be razed, so the luxury car showroom and service center can be that much bigger.
Al Mazzarella has been the proprietor of the restaurant for nearly eight years.
He had already sold his new neighbors land behind the restaurant and had begun to see himself hemmed in by the giant dealership.

(( If for some reason the Hokies have had trouble focusing on their opponents the past two weeks, the picture should be quite clear this week with Pittsburgh coming to town.
Possible pay back for the Panthers and a center who is anything but the center of attention are the hot topics in this morning's Tech 2002 Report.
In case your memory is a little fuzzy - here's some perspective to provide clarity. Ronyell Whitaker's 71 year touchdown return of a blocked punt was the lone Tech highlight at Heinz Field last season.
The 38-to-7 pasting was as dominant of a performance as Tech has ever seen. It was the Hokies worst Big East loss ever as they managed just 15 rushing yards and turned the ball over 4 times.
The players and coaches alike were and still are speechless when it comes to describing what happened.
Owens is one of two seniors starters on the offensive line - but it's the man in the middle with big biceps that will be the key Saturday against Pitt.
Junior Jake Grove - who played under Ed Landis - at Jefferson Forest - graced the cover of the game program this past Saturday - He benches a team best 440 pounds. So I can why he's a cover boy - but a make no mistake about it once he's on the field - he's no alter boy.))
