Since 2005 the city has been buying its water from Macomb.<br /><br />Mayor Danny Bice said the five wells are in Troublesome Bottom.<br /><br />He said, &ldquo;Those wells are just sitting there, you know. We&#39;re not ever going to fire them back up. So the EPA came in two weeks ago and did an investigation and we&#39;ve got to cap them permanent to be in compliance.&rdquo;<br /> Tue, 14 Feb 2012 18:49:01 +0000 James Lenz 10198 at http://tristatesradio.com IEPA Continues Scrutiny of Colchester
