100% WALKERTONWater - A Liquid Killer - Exacerbated Residents' Troubles Over Night Patricia Rix (Walkerton was catapulted into horror and infamy a year and a half ago when it was found that one of the town's wells was contaminated with E. coli to the extent that the water wasn't even safe to wash in. As many as 2000 people got sick, and 7 of them died directly from the E. coli, with perhaps 10 others dying from other causes after being weakened by the bacteria, and many many are left with chronic serious illnesses. You couldn't give away a house in Walkerton during this time, so they were pretty well stuck with it, using bottled water for ingesting, and washing in bleach-water.
