CROW AGENCY, Mont. (AP) - No contamination has been found in the water on the Crow Indian Reservation after a water treatment plant in Crow Agency was vandalized.

Tribal Chairman A.J. Not Afraid declared a state of emergency Wednesday after workers discovered the destruction at the plant, including shots fired at equipment and fire damage. Bottled water was delivered to residents as tests were conducted.

The Billings Gazette reports the tribe announced Friday that no signs of contamination were found. Some water mains connected to the plant were flushed as a precaution.
