Ohio's water worries

Cincinnati's mayor said the drinking water from Greater Cincinnati Water Works will be safe even if contaminated water from the Elk River passes down the Ohio River.

City officials estimate the contaminated water will arrive in the Tri-State by mid-evening on Tuesday and the testing is going on 24 hours a day at Greater Cincinnati Water Works to make sure everyone is prepared.

Mayor John Cranley said that the Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission uses 13 monitors in the river to detect and warn treatment plants downstream about spills so they can take precautionary measures before the spill reaches their intakes.
