They've narrowed down the source to a recreational pool, river or lake.

The health department notified area schools, which caused some concern among local parents.
"We heard about it from her school, she goes to Cumberland Elementary." said Emily Haskui. She isn't worried about her five-year-old daughter's safety, but said she would feel better knowing where the outbreak started.
