The chemicals flowing down the Ohio River from a spill in West Virginia last week will have no affect on the water supplies in Aurora, Greendale and Lawrenceburg. “I was actually surprised at how many people have called and asked about it,” said Randy Turner, Aurora Utilities Superintendent, by phone Tuesday afternoon, Jan. 14.

Aurora’s water comes from well fields behind the former Frisch’s on U.S. 50, as does water for the Lawrenceburg-Manchester-Sparta Conservancy District, said Turner.
