Douglas Hot Springs (Northern Territory) Naegleria fowleri

Over the past six years, the Parks and Wildlife Commission has closed the Douglas Hot Springs every second year due to the detection of N. fowleri. An initial investigation into the potential of N. fowleri occurring in Darwin’s drinking water system was undertaken in 1983 but it was not found.
