From the Consolidated Waterworks District #1 in Terrebonne Parish:
Independent testing initiated by Consolidated Waterworks has returned positive results.
Results of routine testing for the "brain-eating amoeba", Naegleria fowleri, conducted by Consolidated Waterworks, show it is back in Pointe-aux-Chenes, but not on Island Road. The sample point that tested positive was taken at the very end of the distribution in Pointe-aux-Chenes, ACR #160 4260 Highway 665.
After consultation with Louisiana Department of Health engineers, we have changed our disinfection procedure from chloramine to free chlorine.
