Summary (IA Generated)

Residents of south-east Texas had more than COVID to worry about this week — they were just told NOT to use unfiltered water .

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality issued a public warning Friday for several communities and cities on the outskirts of Houston, telling them to avoid drinking or using their household tap water, as it had been found to be contaminated with naegleria fowleri.

just a brain-eating amoeba that takes its sweet time munching away at your noodle.

The Brazosport Water Authority is issuing a Do Not Use Advisory for all water in the following cities: Lake Jackson, Freeport, Angleton, Brazoria, Richwood, Oyster Creek, Clute, Rosenburg, Dow Chemical, TDCJ Clemens and TDCJ Wayne Scott.

The Commission said 11 municipalities from Lake Jackson to Rosbenburg, Brazoria and tons of other towns in between should avoid drinking tap water, or even using the shower for the time being — this after the Brazosport Water Authority informed officials that naegleria had been detected in their supply lines.

The good news is that by Saturday, several of those above-mentioned cities had been removed from the list as being at risk, and only Lake Jackson residents were still under the advisory‘s red alert.

*UPDATE* Do Not Use Water Advisory LIFTED for most Brazosport Water Authority users.

Lake Jackson residents are still urged to heed DO NOT USE Water Advisory.

Oh, and BTW, signs that the amoeba has infiltrated takes about 5 days on average to show up.
