The Centers for Disease Control recently studied 160 pools and found 60% contained E. coli bacteria. High levels of other bacteria that cause rashes, ear infections and diarrhea were also found. The CDC says, “It is time to stop treating the swimming pool as a toilet. Nowhere else except for the pool is it acceptable to poop in public or pee in public. In other places if we did this in public, we’d be arrested.” Many public pools open this Memorial Day weekend. Yuck!
