Milton city officials are reassuring residents the water supply is safe after a possible cryptosporidium outbreak at the high school. Rock County Health Department Nursing Supervisor Deb Erickson said one case has been confirmed, and about 20 students are showing symptoms.
Erickson said the Health Department deals with about 20 cases a year. The district has been cleaning the high school in response paying special attention to the swimming pool and sterilizing all the bathrooms and locker rooms.
City Administrator Al Hulick has issued a statement saying the city’s drinking water is routinely tested and appears unaffected.
