ENTERPRISE, La. — Residents of one central Louisiana community say they’re worried about bacterial contamination in their water system.

Some residents of the Catahoula Parish community of Enterprise tell KNOE-TV that Tulane University researchers have found elevated levels of fecal coliform in water taken from their homes.

The residents say they’re afraid to drink the water, which is provided by a rural water system operated by JCP Management of Harrisonburg.

Glen Womack, who owns JCP Management, says his company can only take action if instructed by the state Health Department.

Residents plan a community meeting Saturday to discuss the problem, and are trying to collect bottled water donations.
