wrong with what comes out.


Jeanette Brown/Chatham Resident:
"Ours has been fine. We haven't
noticed any change in the color or in
the taste."


But there is a problem at the
source.


Water inside Chatham's filtration
plant is showing high levels of a mud,
chemicals, and other contaminates.


Mike Jones/Chatham Town Manager:
"It all started with a bunch of clouds
and a big rain storm."


Nats of creek


That caused the creek that
Chatham pulls its water from to fill up
with debris and everything else that
washes down during a storm.


They shut down their water plant
Monday to clean it all out.


But the contamination is still
there - town officials believe it may
be coming from fertilizers.


Jones: "It's unknown at this
time, but we're not letting that
unknown get into the system."


As for what's going out to
customers.


Jones: "The water that comes out
of their taps is safe to drink. I've
drank it and not thought twice about
it."


This situation has affected some
local businesses. Until they get the
water straightened out, every
laundromat and car wash is shut down.


Jones: "We're sorry we have to do
that, because we understand the
economic impact, but the owners have
been universally supportive of what the
town's doing."


Residents are supportive too.


Brown: "I know they'll fix it.
Whatever needs to be done, they'll fix
it."


And get the water flowing

: Students at a Kentucky high
school set a new world record by
simultaneously setting off the largest
number of Mentos and Diet Coke geysers
on the school's campus.


Eighteen hundred erupted...
breaking the previous record of
13-hundred set in Belgium earlier this
year.


All proceeds from the experiment
benefitted the Ronald McDonald House.
