Lager on Missouri Lakes

One Missouri Senator says lakes across Missouri could have more of a health risk than originally thought.

Republican Dan Brown of Rolla wants the State Department of Natural Resources to use a more efficient test to look for E. Coli in Missouri lakes. Senate Environmental Committee Chairman Brad Lager of Savannah says it's the government's job to make all Missouri lakes safe and free of potential health risks.

Lager says that E. Coli needs to be treated because Missouri lakes are a great benefit economically because of how many people visit each year.

Lager says he feels responsible to help the public enjoy the lakes in a safe manner, and thinks this new process can be more productive. No one in the committee expressed disagreement.
