New problem for Stockton water brings warning sign


STOCKTON - As if the water in downtown Stockton wasn't smelly or ugly enough from algae, it's now got an E. coli problem as well. That's what prompted city officials to put up a warning sign along the waterfront.

"It's a bacteria from animal feces. It could be from a variety of sources. We just don't know exactly where it's from. We want to protect public health and keep folks safe," city biologist Mel Lytle said.

Lytle said because the drought has put so little fresh water into the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, Stockton's algae problem is as severe as it's been in years. Where the channel dead-ends downtown, piles of algae and garbage pile up, with the smell so unpleasant people can be seen walking by holding their noses.

A 16-year-old boy was shot in the chest Monday afternoon at a skate park on El Dorado Street in Stockton.

The shooting was in a parking lot at the skate park and the victim was able to get himself to a residential area about a block away where an ambulance was called, according to Stockton police.

The teen was transported to an area hospital in critical condition, police said. Monday evening, a police representative said the youth was expected to survive.

Police do not have a description of the shooter and police spokesperson Officer Joe Silva said witnesses were not being cooperative.
