The Oregon Health Authorty grants Milton-Freewater a 90-day extension to come up with differnt ways to assist a neighboring trailer park with its fecal contamintaed water.
Wells providing water to a trailer park just north of the city have been deemed a health risk due to E.Coli and coliform contamination.
Residents there filed a petition for annexation to the city of Milton-Freewater last year in order to connect water and sewer to the site.
The city tells us that could cost millions of dollars.
The new deadline is September 30th.
That's when the city will present alternative solutions to the annexation in front of the state.
