E.Coli Found at East Jessamine

The Jessamine County school district announced the closure of the East Jessamine soccer field Wednesday after high levels of bacteria were found. A test sample of standing water between the field and the home bleachers showed a concentration of E. coli nine times higher than the EPA's acceptable risk criteria, according to a news release from the school district. The field is not located at East High; the complex is off Wilmore Road behind the central-office building and Jessamine Early Learning Village.
