Just last week, five sites in DeSoto Parish Water District No. 1 were tested and discovered to have a rare amoeba in the system. Due to this recent finding, along with one in St. Bernard Parish in south Louisiana, the Town of Many wants to reassure its citizens that its water is completely safe for usage. “Our system is safe,” Many mayor Ken Freeman said. “We haven’t been under a boil alert since the drought two years ago and we take many measures to make sure your water is safe.”
