DeSoto Begins Water ‘Chlorine Burn’ To Rid System of Potentially Deadly Amoeba

youtube

The following official ‘Public Notice’ was released this afternoon by John Neilson, Director of DeSoto Parish’s Water District #1. Earlier this week the Center For Disease Control in Atlanta confirmed that tests showed the existence of a potentially dangerous, even deadly amoebic bacteria in that district’s water. 

Waterworks District #1 in DeSoto Parish is initiating a “chlorine burn” in our system to combat the detection of the Naegleria Fowleri amoeba in our system. Customers may notice a higher smell and taste of chlorine in the drinking water, but levels of chlorine will stay below maximums recommended by Louisiana DHH. Customers may also at times notice a slight discoloration of the water. This flushing program will continue until we have achieved the new standards of chlorine recommended by the Louisiana DHH. For more information, please call Waterworks District #1 at 318 872-0004 or visit the Louisiana Dept. of Health and Hospitals website: http://www.dhh.louisiana.gov/index.cfm/newsroom/detail/2889
