IU hospitals find bacteria in tap water

– Indiana University Health is limiting water use at two of its hospitals after water samples at the hospitals tested positive for the bacteria that cause Legionnaires’ disease.

The Indianapolis Star reports IU Health officials went room to room Thursday at the two hospitals, explaining the decision to limit patients’ water consumption.
