CRWP's Dave Legvold featured on MPR

sewageThere's a story on the MPR website including audio that talks about the work that Dave Legvold of the Cannon River Watershed Partnership does with water quality testing and... well, sewage.

Legvold lifts the pipe and a little water trickles into his container.

"We can grab a sample here. Remind me not to pick my teeth or rub my eyes," he says.

There's so much E. coli in this water when the sample is tested it goes off the top of the scale. Farther back, he finds another straight pipe which produces the same results.
