(2007-10-23)
(WOUB) - In an effort to keep the city's drinking water safe, Athens City Councilmembers adopted a wellhead protection ordinance.

Last night, they got to hear about their handywork during a presentation from Mike Cooper.

Cooper is the city's wellhead protection specialist.

Cooper says his department has investigated reports of pollution incidents and done training sessions for businesses and educational programs for school children.

He delivered his report to members of city council's Environment Committee.
