    Public Pools

    I wonder what local parks and rec department's 'safe levels' are to clear this up in 2 days? From a local story:

    "The St. Joseph Aquatic Park was evacuated and closed Thursday due to a contamination event.
    Director of Parks, Recreation and Civic Facilities Chuck Kempf said that human fecal matter contaminated the pool.
    "It's a serious situation," Kempf said. "We have to react to it, we have to make sure that our patrons are safe, that we're not putting them in any kind of danger with any, you know, any material in the water that could impact their health."
    Kempf said the Parks department will clean the pools and balance the chemicals in the water to safe levels. The Health department may get involved if it is deemed necessary.
    "We will be working on addressing that issue. We will follow the CDCs guideline for that type of an event," Kempf said.
    Kempf expects the Aquatic Center to be reopened by Saturday if everything goes according to plan."
