UPDATE: The Louisiana Department of Health says the Bossier Water System is free to return to normal operations.

The water system has conducted a 60 day chlorine flush after a brain eating amoeba was found in the Sligo Water System back in October.

The flush lasted for six weeks.

Since the discovery, the state has tested the water once a week and the city tested the water twice a week.

The city sent it its final sample to the state this morning and the results came back in this morning.
