LEO;; NOT TO MENTION;; I HAVE JUST LEARNED OF SOME TYPE OF;; FLESH EATING BACTERIA;; IN SOME ALABAMA WATERS !   WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON ??  WE NEVER USE TO HAVE THIS STUFF ANYWHERE !!

As Allen said, we got too much craps from human activities, concentrated chemicals, and perfect conditions for breeding the ultra bacteria and pathogens.

Not only the swimming holes, lakes, and ocean, but the pipes that connected to the infested water now brew the critters as well. They love to swim and grown upstream. This is why water districts increase the load of chlorine agents constantly. For me, I personally test my water by sending samples to labs for bacteria and pathogens every few years where I normally stay. I do that myself at time using my own equipment in the garage every year. Not as accurate because of the cross contamination, but enough for me to see the general picture.

Carl, all the fertilizer runoff from farms/lawns/golf courses, plus warming trends and stagnant conditions.

Something like this happened in OK many years ago.  Public with swimming areas was shut down after someone contracted this amoeba.

I CHECKED OUT THE AREA; OF BAMA;; IN QUESTION;;; FOUND ; ITS GENERALLY AROUND MOBILE;; DAUPHIN ISLAND;;;   SO FAR;; ABOUT 4 CASES OF IT FOUND.......

You have to remember, it doesn't need to be in an isolated place. Once these suckers manage to get their way underground through a well system, the entire aquifer is pretty much primed to get these nasty buggers passed along through other well systems. It only take one infestation to make the entire area a living nightmare.

It's certainly something to consider just like ticks. Sooner or later all of the chemicals, etc. we have created will have an affect on our environment. I think sooner is now. There are no easy answers, but we should not let someone else worry about it.
