THIS IS IMPORTANT!!!!
The organism does not pose a threat to society until it becomes an opportunistic respiratory pathogen. A healthy person or animal that either drinks water containing the bacteria or breaths in the air containing the bacteria cannot become ill from L.D. The bacteria which is known to be present in water supplies is harmless until the environment is changed to an acid condition with a pH level between 6.6 and 6.9, combined with a temperature at or above 100°F. Hot water temperatures at or above 140°F will kill the organism. In cold water temperatures the organism is present but does not reproduce or become a pathogen.
Once you get this bug in your system it’s just looking for the right conditions then it kills everyone it comes in contact with. Tommy, listen to Sylvan don’t create an environment for this bug to live in. The bug is in your cold water supply and everywhere it is just waiting for the right conditions to become a killer.
