Brain-eating amoeba found in Louisiana drinking water again

All freshwater sources in the parish have been affected, including drinking water, the water in the bayous and pools, plus water used for showers and baths.

The water is “perfectly safe to drink,” claimed Michael Sobert from Consolidated Waterworks, “it’s just not safe to get up your nose.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said infection usually occurs when people go swimming in areas where the amoeba is present or when drinking water enters the nose — it can’t be contracted simply from drinking water contaminated with the organism.
