Bossier City wraps up chlorine burnout

The city of Bossier City has concluded a free chlorine burnout of the city’s water distribution system.

The burnout which began on Feb. 21, was conducted in response to an order issued by the Department of Health and Hospitals as a way to ensure that there are no issues in municipal water systems with Naegleria fowleri, also known as brain-eating amoeba. The burnout was not in response to any presence of the parasite in the city’s water system. The public was notified of the process beforehand.

Bossier City is now resuming its normal water disinfecting procedures by use of chloramines, which are created by combining chlorine and ammonia.

As such, customers who use tap water for kidney dialysis at home should consult their doctors to advise them if any changes are necessary in their residual disinfectant neutralization procedures.

Customers utilizing the water for aquariums should monitor both free and combined chlorine residuals.

During normal business hours, residents can call 741-8466 with any questions. After business hours, residents should call 7410- 8371.
