SYRACUSE, Utah (AP) -- A report from Syracuse officials says the city's water supply may have bacteria in it, but it shouldn't threaten the public's health.

Additional testing of Syracuse's water revealed no E. coli or other disease-causing bacteria. Health officials say Syracuse residents should not worry about their drinking water.

Syracuse Public Works Director Mike Waite says residents in his city have confused the warning about drinking water with one about swimming pools, which have been causing some residents to become sick.

He says some residents are blaming the wrong one for their symptoms. He says some who have seen the coliform warning thought tap water was giving them diarrhea, but that's not the case.
