On June 17, officials evacuated people from the water, but on Wednesday swimmers were reportedly not asked to leave. Goldblatt says there has been no indication that anyone has been harmed or illnesses reported by anyone coming into contact with the sheen yesterday or last month. He says IDEM suggests that if you have come into contact with it, to wash yourself with soap and water and not to ingest it.
Goldblatt says while the preliminary report of last month's sheen indicated the presence of a food additive, he says he doesn't know if that may even be found in the actual report...which will be a detailed analysis, breaking down each compound found in the water.
