TELL CITY – Five small bottles were lined up on their table when the Tell City Board of Public Works and Safety met Jan. 18. One contained drinking water, another held a sample from the Ohio River. One was filled with effluent from the city’s water-treatment plant, one contained rain and the other, raw sewage.
The one with a black layer at the bottom was easiest to identify, Mayor Barbara Ewing said.
Suggestions about taste-testing any of the contents brought laughs, but no volunteers.
