More Bacteria Found at Shamrock Motel in Camden

Posted:

CAMDEN, Del. – The Delaware Department of Health and Social Services said a motel that tested positive for E. Coli earlier this month has tested positive for a different bacteria.

Health officials said they tested water samples taken from the Shamrock Motel earlier this week, after E. Coli was found in water samples on September 8th.

Authorities said during this second round of tests, water samples tested positive for total coliform bacteria. No E. Coli was found this time around.

Health officials said there is a boil water notice already in effect and it will remain in effect after this latest round of testing. Officials contacted the owner of the motel and asked that he re-chlorinate the well.

This motel is one of many across Delaware that the state uses as temporary emergency housing for homeless people.

Authorities said six people were staying there. They have since moved at least five of those people to other places in Delaware.
