It's no surprise to the city of College Station or state experts, but E. coli was among the contaminants found in Carter Creek after last week's sewage spill.
Samples taken by the TECQ last week showed the bacteria's presence in the creek. However, the commission did not feel follow-up tests were needed because the city removed all the solids from the creek.
Clean-up is all but complete, according to city officials, who also note that the city's drinking water is stored in pipes near Lake Bryan, so contamination is nearly impossible.
A full report from TCEQ on the four-million gallon sewage spill is due in a few weeks.
