Water Quality Questions Throw Monkey Wrench into Plans for Adair County Fair
GREENFIELD, Iowa -- There's lots of planning that goes into a county fair without having to worry about water quality, but then came a curveball yesterday complicating matters, with word that the water from the Greenfield Municipal Utilities water system might not be safe. "We were originally told that the water would not be fit for the livestock to drink," said Dan Westphal, Swine Superintendent - Adair County Fair. "And that it would almost be an issue if they were being bathed that they would maybe take in or ingest some of that water, it could be an issue or a health issue for the animals at that time."
