May 15
May 17-19
May 24-31
A rain storm carried cattle maneuver into the town's water well and the chlorinating system didn't kill all the bacteria (the E.coli) that the maneuver brought with it. The E.coli made people ill and brought death.
The first sign of the contaminated water show with bloody diarrhea and flu-like sicknesses. The public utilities commission(PUC) faxed saying that the water is contaminated with E.coli. The PUC doesn't report this problem to the public health officials. May 19- Region's Medical Health Office(MHO) notified with a few people with bloody diarrhea. Local doctors treated problems like bloody diarrhea, vomiting, cramps and fevers since May 17th.
About 40 people, on May 20th, report the hospital with bloody diarrhea. PUC tells the ofiicials that he water is safe. May 21st- MHO warns people not to drink untreated tap water. MHO does their own water sample test. MHO confirmed that the water was contaminated with E.coli. MHO confronts PUC. MHO told about PUC's May 17 fax. Chlorine put in water to clean the water has not been working.
May 20-23
The first four deaths- three adults and a baby, were caused by E.coli. Locals schools closed. May 25th- Fifth person died by the infection o E.coli. Regional police force asked Ontario Provincial Police to do a Criminal investigation on the background of outbreak. Environment Minister Dan Newman calls news conference to announce changes to promise provincial water will be safe. May 30th- Sixth victim. May 31st- Seventh victim.
May 12, 2000
The people of Walkerton today are still affected and fearful of the tragic contamination that occurred about 10 years ago. During that time, 7 people died and about more than 2,300 suffered from it. At first, the residents thought it was the flu, but it turned out to be much worst. Not only was it affecting Walkerton but also neighboring communities and cities.
Who, What ,When, Where, Why and How
Who: The people of Walkerton
The Public Utitlities Commision (PUC)
Region's Medical Health Office (MHO)
Stan Koebel and Frank Koebel
What: The water was contaminated with E.Coli
When: May (12), 2000
Where:Walkerton, Ontario
Why: a chlorinating system failed to kill all the bacteria in the water
How:May 12th, a rain storm led cattle maneuver into the town water well. The maneuver brought the E.Coli bacteria and the chlorinating system in the well didn't kill the bacteria.
Even though the Walkerton Tragedy happened long ago, people are still affected by it. Short-term health issues that happened during the tragedy were:
-bloody diarrhea

Long-term health problems that people still suffer from are:
-Bowel syndrome
~side effects include: cramping, constipation, diarrhea, pain and discomfort in the abdominal.
-Digestive problems
E.coli also affects children as well. If not treated, E.coli can lead to hemolytic uremic syndrome. A condition that leads to acute kidney failure.
During the time of the Walkerton Tragedy, many residents were forbidden to drink from their tap at home. This was because the water lines were being cleaned free of contamination. It became a habit for the residents and the bottled water industries saw a big change in the beverage market. In 2000, the percentage was 5%. In 2006, it rose up to 9.1%. That means in just 6 years, the percentage rose by 4.1%!
Not only did the people suffer from the contamination but the environment also suffered as well. The Ontario Clean Water Agency was in charge of cleaning up the mess. It took quite a lot of money to clean the whole thing up. Since then Walkerton has become a more clean and non-contaminated region of Ontario!
Where is Walkerton, Ontario?
The PUC take sample's of the water in Walkerton, Ontario.
The Walkerton water tragedy started on May 12th, 2000. The water was contaminated with E.coli and many people suffered and died from it. The water was not clean or safe to drink. Some effects of the E.coli were: bloody diarrhea, vomiting, cramps, fevers and death. There were seven victims killed by E.coli and thousands that were infected. During this time, Stan Koebel was the manager and Frank Koebel was the water foreman. Both did not receive formal training for their jobs.
Frank Koebel
Stan Koebel
~Cassandra Diement never drinks water from the tap. This 9-year-old little girl always drinks from bottled water that her mom, Stacey buys. Stacey drinks one or two glasses of tap water. On the other hand she buys bottled water for her kids. "I don't want to ever go though that again. For the kid's health and safety, I would rather buy water. I know it might be expensive but it is worth it."
~Ian McDonald also caught the E.coli infection when he was 4. He had painful cramps and diarrhea. He was transferred to the hospital in London. His condition got worse and he needed operation. After that his sister, Kylie was also transferred to the hospital, suffering the same thing.
The Koebel Brothers
Stan Koebel was the manager and Frank Koebel was the water foreman at this time, in Walkerton. They both didn't get any formal training for their jobs. Stan and Frank Koebel was sentenced on the criminal charge of common nuisance and they both have pleaded guilty.

The Solution
-Joanne
TOOK CHARGE
Brothers, Stan and Frank Koebel were mostly blamed for the Walkerton water contamination. Stan didn't follow the MOE's (Ministry of Environment) recommendation. Being the manager of the water foreman, he did not properly monitor the chroline levels in the water. Naturally this caused his decisions to lead to this problem that could have been prevented. The next two pictures show Stan and Frank in a conference room, trying to convince and beg the people to not send them to jail.

What is E.coli?
Escherichia coli (more commonly known as E.coli but also known as O157:H7) is a " Gram-negative, facultative anaerobic, rod-shaped" bacterium that can be found in the lower intestine. E.coli can be harmless but some serotypes can cause serious poisoning in humans. Sometimes, it causes food recalls because of food contamination. The harmless E.coli can actually be a good thing for their hosts. It produces vitamin K2, and by stops the establishment of pathogenic bacteria inside the intestine. It is a cause of foodborne and waterborne illness. E.coli is also a very powerful toxin that can cause severe illness.
