The City of Noblesville announced today its awareness of places in the city where mosquitos testing positive for West Nile virus have been found.

Earlier this month, the city announced positive samples from mosquito traps had been discovered from Dillon Park.

Now, the Hamilton County Health Dept. has informed the city that four additional test sites have returned positive results. They include traps placed at White River Elementary (19000 Cumberland Rd.), Hague Road Nature Haven (southwest corner of Ind. 38 and Hague Road), 186th Street and Promise Road and the Noblesville Wastewater Plant (197 W. Washington St.).

Hamilton County has said it will use all three of its trucks to spray in the affected zones this evening, and the Noblesville Street Dept. will continue to larvacide breeding habitats.

A total of 15 sites throughout the county have tested positive for West Nile mosquitos in the past month, but there have been no reported cases of a human contracting the virus in Noblesville this year.
