Baton Rouge, LA — Baton Rouge, LA (NBC33)-- In rural Saint Landry Parish, a fight is brewing over safe drinking water after nearly two hundred residents refuse to drink from contaminated wells. Tonight at 10, Jennifer Crockett has our exclusive investigation "There's Something In The Water". Jennifer talks to people living between Krotz Springs and Melville, who started testing their private wells, after a neighbor was diagnozed with arsenic poisoning. They've filed for an emergency grant and petitioned every elected offfical from the Governonr to the local police jury. But there's been little progress, and now the community is fed up. They want action now to keep everyone else from getting sick. Tune in tonight at 10 to hear this story.
