Salmonella outbreak linked to tap water !!!!SHIT!!!
DENVER - State health officials warned residents of a southern Colorado town Wednesday to stop drinking and cooking with tap water because they said it might be linked to a salmonella outbreak.

The state health department said 33 cases of salmonella have been confirmed and 46 other reports were being investigated in Alamosa, a city of 8,500 about 160 miles south of Denver. Officials said that the tap water tested positive for bacteria believed to be salmonella, but that the results had not been confirmed.

Water-borne salmonella outbreaks are fairly rare, said Mark Salley, a spokesman for the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. The bacteria are typically spread by food, he said.
Salmonella can cause diarrhea, fever and stomach pain. Victims typically recover on their own, but the elderly, infants and people with impaired immune systems may require treatment. Untreated, salmonella can cause death in vulnerable victims, the health department said.

Boiling water for 15 seconds will kill the bacteria, but health officials advised residents to use bottled water for brushing teeth, washing dishes, making ice, cooking, drinking and making baby formula. People can use tap water to bathe, as long as they are careful not to ingest it, Salley said.

City officials plan to start flushing and disinfecting the water system in the next few days, a process that could take a week or more. While the flush is under way, no municipal water should be used, even if it is boiled, they said.

The first salmonella victim began showing symptoms around March 8, and state health officials became aware of the outbreak Friday, said Ned Calonge, the health departmentís chief medical officer.

Officials tested city water on Monday, and the results showing bacteria in the water system came back Wednesday, Salley said.

Health officials are still investigating how the water was contaminated.

Tainted tap water led to a large salmonella outbreak in a Southern California town in 1965, Salley said. In that case, as in Alamosa, the city was drawing water from a deep well and the water was not chlorinated.

Grocery stores and distributors were working to ship more bottled water to Alamosa. Some companies offered to give away water and hand sanitizers, Calonge said.

this is a non-spectacular terror event.

like the forest fires in California last summer costing millions

Like the salmonella poisoning in the pot pies and peanut butter recently costing millions

I said we cannot protect our water supply in an age of terror here on GLP:

This year close to one million Americans will get sick from something in their water; about 1,000 of those ultimately result in fatalities, according the Center for Disease Control. These are the figures, without a terror intervention, how much more damage and death when there is a concerted effort to harm and kill people?

Water is vulnerable and not hard to contaminate. This last summer in North Carolina, 75,000 of our soldiers and their families were poisoned by drinking contaminated water on a military base using PCE, a dry cleaning agent readily available to anyone. This was not a terror attack, but why couldn't a terrorist duplicate this failure in our systems to harm Americans all over the country? The answer is, they could!

In his 2002 State of the Union Address, President Bush noted that captured Al Qaeda documents included detailed maps of several U.S. municipal public drinking water systems.

Apprehension regarding a terrorist assault on drinking water systems has also been reinforced by news reports and arrests of suspects charged with threatening to contaminate municipal water supplies in the U.S.

No matter how minor the contamination event or short-term the disruption to the delivery of safe drinking water, the psychological, medical and potential public health impact on the U.S. population could be significant.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 390181


If the MSM reported what they know, it would cause panic on a national scale.

Easier to say someone just forgot to chlorinate than to say someone purposefully did not chlorinate, or worse, introduced fecal matter into the resevoir.

Just like when salomella is introduced into the food chain like the peanut butter and pot pie national recalls last year.

Just like they blamed a kid with matches last summer when the California wildfires reached the 'perfect storm' status when combined with the Santa Anna winds, just coincidence.

Even though authorities have documented evidence that captured terrorist documents have mentioned starting wild fires in California, and poisoning water and food supplies with salmonella, they don't follow that lead.

The do not to avoid the panic that would ensue when we realize we are helpless to stop such a non-spectacular terror event.
