Public swimming pools just as dirty as Lake Erie


See wkyc

The Centers for Disease Control tested a number of public pools and found that 58 percent were positive for E. coli, bacteria normally found in the human gut and feces.

Other bacteria that can cause skin rashes was found in 59 percent.

Pools don’t put up signs warning of water advisories. Lake Erie’s beaches do.

But the naked eye can’t really tell if there are warnings in place.
