Tonight officials are warning people to stay away from Ashland creek.
They say the water is contaminated with E-Coli. According to experts, E-Coli levels often go up this time of year because of higher temperatures and low water levels.
Doctors say if you've recently had contact with creek water, you should wash and clean thoroughly. If you have any questions or concerns you can contact the Jackson County health department at 541-774-8206.
