CLINTON, Utah (AP) - The Davis County Attorney’s Office is investigating the cause of Clinton city’s recent water contamination, and charges could be pending if there was criminal intent involved.

The Standard-Examiner reports (https://bit.ly/1GsqGyh) that Clinton was on a boil notice advisory for five days after lab tests revealed the city’s culinary drinking system had been contaminated with E. coli and coliform. The advisory was lifted Thursday.

The incident appears to have been a result of a culinary and secondary cross connection on a 20-year-old home in the city.

The City Council is also discussing a city ordinance that would increase the maximum fine from $750 to $1, and increasing the maximum jail time for those parties found responsible from 90 days to six months.
