CDC study highlights pool-borne illnesses
CDC researchers and public health officials in Atlanta collected samples from 161 swimming pool filters throughout the city and found 58 percent of them contained E.coli, a bacteria found in human feces.

• Commonly called crypto, cryptosporidium is a tiny parasite that lives in the intestines of humans and animals. An infected swimmer can release enough of the parasite to sicken everyone nearby who happens to swallow any water.
There were 38 cases of toxic E.coli reported to the state's Division of Public Health Services. While most healthy adults will recover in about 10 days, children, seniors and people with compromised immune systems are at risk for serious complications.
