Discovery of dead horses causes Pleasant Prairie to test drinking water
PLEASANT PRAIRIE - Pleasant Prairie Public Works were called by residents concerned about drinking water after numerous amount of dead horses and other animals were found on a property.
Thursday, May 2, the department analyzed drinking water samples from two wells on the property, but the water samples came back as safe to drink. A nearby stream was also tested and was also found to be safe.
"Although it is not mandatory for nearby residents to have wells tested as a result of the animals buried on the property, it is a good practice for well owners to test their wells annually," said Director of Public Works, John Steinbrink.
The investigation into the dead animals on the farm in Pleasant Prairie continues.
