CINCINNATI (FOX19) – Hamilton County Public Health is urging residents to avoid recreational activities in creeks southwest of Winton Lake this weekend due to a sewer line break.

Public health sanitarians inspected a major sewer line break Friday at a nursing home at 8097 Hamilton Avenue in Mount Healthy. While the sewer line is being repaired, people need to use caution when visiting nearby creeks and Winton Lake to prevent becoming contaminated.
