As the ball tournament begins to wind down, people begin to get sick. At first, three kids get sick and are taken to hospital. Then more and more people become ill. Over the next week, the number of sick people rises and includes almost everyone who was at the ball tournament and most of the community. There are no deaths but the final count of people who became sick is over 1000.
In March 2001, the solids contact unit in the surface water treatment plant was emptied and all the sludge removed from the bottom in order to inspect, clean and repair a crack that had formed in the cement floor. This type of repair should normally be done in February, so that the spring breakup and runoff will not affect the system.
