CDC finds E. coli in most pools

Posted: Updated:

If you plan to hit the pool this summer to cool down be sure to shower first.

The CDC is asking you to scrub clean before having fun to keep the pools clean.

Apparently, recent tests found E. coli in more than half of the pools sampled.

Experts say that means people are bringing fecal matter into the pools.

Fortunately, a properly-chlorinated pool can kill the bacteria quickly.
