Understanding The E. coli Test Results
The Wimberley community has a lot at stake in maintaining the health and beauty of Cypress Creek. Through misunderstanding, misinterpretation or misrepresentation, the report of a recent small sample of bacterial sources along Cypress Creek is being used to try to convince the public that the pollution in the downtown section of the creek is not caused by leaking septic systems.
Wimberley has already approved a new downtown sewer system and plant, which should begin construction soon. Even so, Citizens Alliance for Responsible Development (CARD) thinks it is irresponsible to ignore implications that Wimberley does not need a modern, safe and decades-overdue sewer system. All indications, including this same report, make it clear that downtown water is NOT safe.
