BASF grant for LJ

Lake Jackson Building Official David Walton demonstrates where a vacuum breaker should be attached to a hose at resident’s homes in Lake Jackson. The devices have been distributed to about 1,500 homes so far.

LAKE JACKSON — The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention arrived in the city Monday to test for Naegleria fowleri, or initial genetic material for a brain-eating amoeba, City Manager Modesto Mundo said.

The final results from that testing, which Mundo anticipates getting about Dec. 15, will determine whether the city can end its free chlorine conversion, rather than the original 60-day plan, per Texas Commission on Environmental Quality’s guidance.
