Water samples from five households in Waggaman showed no evidence of bacteria and meet drinking water standards, according to a Jefferson Parish official. But resident Keith Kiraly, whose inquiry initiated the parish testing Thursday, said the latest samples confirmed low levels of disinfection in water at his home.
The parish sampled the water Thursday after Kiraly became concerned when he saw fire hydrants being flushed over the past several weeks. A private contractor tested the water in his home Tuesday and advised him not to drink it until chlorine levels were increased, Kiraly said.
