    New problem for NO, E. Coli present in water

    Now it offically went from bad to worse.

    http://www.cnn.com/2005/US/09/06/kat...act/index.html

    NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana (CNN) -- Floodwater in New Orleans is contaminated with E. coli bacteria, a city official told CNN Tuesday.

    The official in Mayor Ray Nagin's office declined to be identified.

    The failures of the levee system after Hurricane Katrina's onslaught left about 80 percent of the city flooded with water up to 20 feet deep -- water that became a toxic mix of chemicals, garbage, corpses and human waste. (See video of restarted pumping station -- 2:14)

    E. coli comes from human and animal waste and can be found in untreated sewage.

    Drinking water contaminated with E. coli can lead to serious illness and death if not properly treated.

    Just like my swimming pool when the algae starts to appear, I'd start dumping chlorine into the water in mass quantities.

    Players come and go, but I will always be a Miami Dolphins Fan first and foremost.

    E Coli? I'd be more worried about the chemicals and 200 year old corpses myself.

    Youd think all those chemicals would kill bacteria.. I think the chemicals are overstated since they are so diluted in that water. I still wouldnt swim in that thing though.

    There is this river that runs through Sao Paulo, Brasil that Id pass everyday on the bus ride to school.. I imagine the New Orleans water smells and looks something like that.. Toxic, putrid, with rotting animal carcasses floating around in it..

    Its the grossest river you will ever see.. Last time I was there they had this thing on the news showing the little town near where the river emptied out, and this toxic foam would build up around the area. Its like a biohazard. Sao Paulo is like New York + Los Angeles x 100 in terms of pollution.

    the water is like a petri dish and will become very infectious before they are done. E- coli is just the begining. I have had to learn about some of those things because of the polluted Okeechobee Lake water they are dumping into the St. Lucie River. And it will not be long before the infections will begin to surface. Dysentary could be terrible throughout the striken area and was a voiced concern by rescue co-ordinators early on. The decomposing bodies will be horrible beyond belief and probably should be sampled for DNA and then incinerated. Soapafication will begin soon, and I just cannot imagine how they will be able to do much with what they find that wouldn't slow the whole thing down to much to be effective. Talk about nightmares for the recovery teams. After the 1928 hurricane the ground was too wet to bury so they burned the bodies a great pyres, or mass buried in West Palm Beach. Something not ever talked about was just how much human flesh was in the rubble of 9/11. A couple of hundred thousand pounds of ground up flesh. I have always thought the fires that burned for weeks was a good thing.
