    District Takes Proactive Measures to Address City Water Woes

    Bossier Schools is taking proactive measures in regard to the water situation and free chlorine burn affecting the City of Bossier City and parts of Benton and Haughton.

    The district has been in communication with the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals and been assured the water is safe to drink. However, as a precaution, we will be checking all water fountains for proper water pressure and flushing water lines to minimize any chlorine taste and/or odor before students return from Fall Break on Tuesday, October 16. Parents with concerns about drinking water are also welcome to send bottled water to school with their child.

    Information on Naegleria fowlerif, the amoeba present in a recent water sampling in the southern part of Bossier City, can be found here: http://ldh.la.gov/index.cfm/page/1696

    According to the Centers for Disease Control, preventative measures to reduce the risk of Naegleria fowleri include the following:

    DO NOT allow water to go up your nose or sniff water into your nose when bathing, showering, washing your face, or swimming in small hard plastic/blow-up pools. ·

    DO NOT jump into or put your head under bathing water (bathtubs, small hard plastic/blow-up pools); walk or lower yourself in. ·

    DO NOT allow children to play unsupervised with hoses or sprinklers, as they may accidentally squirt water up their nose. Avoid slip-n-slides or other activities where it is difficult to prevent water going up the nose. ·

    DO run bath and shower taps and hoses for five minutes before use to flush out the pipes. This is most important the first time you use the tap after the water utility raises the disinfectant level. ·

    DO keep small hard plastic/blow-up pools clean by emptying, scrubbing and allowing them to dry after each use. ·

    DO use only boiled and cooled, distilled or sterile water for making sinus rinse solutions for neti pots or performing ritual ablutions. ·

    If you need to manually top off the water in your swimming pool with tap water, follow the guidance below:

    DO ensure that the filter is running and top off your pool by adding water directly into the skimmer box. The hose should not be submerged into the skimmer box or pool water. Hold the end of your hose in the air at least two inches above the flood-level rim of the skimmer box. This can be accomplished by securing the hose to a heavy object such as a chair or cinder block above the skimmer and ensuring the hose will run into the skimmer box without the hose being submerged. ·

    DO NOT top off your pool by submerging the hose in the body of the pool. ·

    DO keep your swimming pool or hot tub adequately disinfected before and during use. Adequate disinfection standards are listed below: For pools, keep pH levels from 7.2 to 7.8. If you are using cyanuric acid-free chlorine, use between two and 10 parts per million. If you are not using cyanuric acid-free chlorine, keep chlorine levels at one to three parts per million. ·

    For hot tubs and spas, keep pH levels from 7.2 to 7.8, and keep either free chlorine levels from two to four parts per million or free bromine levels from four to six parts per million. Residents should continue these precautions until testing no longer confirms the presence of the amoeba in the water system. The water system will notify residents when that occurs.
