Undated Statement regarding Naegleria Fowleri Ameoba with CDC link

We are aware that the Naegleria Fowleri amoeba was recently found in the Sligo Water System, which purchases water from Bossier City.  As most of our members are aware, CBB also purchases water from Bossier City.  We understand that Bossier City has stated that the amoeba has not been found in their water; but it is also our understanding that State Department of Health is doing additional testing on Bossier’s water.   We have not been notified of any risks or concerns with our water by the Department of Health.  However, we are monitoring the situation and will work closely with the Department of Health to address any concerns that might arise.
