HEREFORD -- Hereford High School students are expected to have running water today after drinking bottled water for nearly a week because the school's water was contaminated by pigeons.

The birds flew into the school's water tower through an uncovered vent and fouled the water, said Donald Mohler, spokesman for county schools. Officials removed the pigeons yesterday, flushed the area and repaired the vent screen.

Assistant Principal Robert Hamilton said late yesterday that environmental specialists had confirmed the contamination was removed. The water was turned back on, Mohler said.
