Anywhere else and this would be a problem, but near New Orleans they will just starve to death.

This is the second time in two years that the amoeba has been discovered outside New Orleans.
...
During a screening of the water supply after the rediscovery of the amoeba, the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals (LDHH) found that chlorine levels were not being maintained at the level needed to kill off the dangerous organism.

Okay, I can understand one time, but TWO?! Good lord. They say the water is safe to drink, just don't get it in your nose. That's freaking terrifying. I'd switch to bottled water for sure,

What about showering, washing your car, or any other number of times you come into close contact with tap water?
