You can help ensure DC's public pools are safe!

The CDC is equipping people everywhere who use public pools with the tools they need to assess the safety of pool water.   (Thanks to News Channel 8 for their piece on this.)   The CDC's map of test results shows that the one pool tested in DC (a public adult pool) had an unacceptable pH level and unacceptable chlorine level.   This puts this pool in the 45% and 49%, respectively, of pools with unacceptable pH and chlorine levels.

You can help fix this by testing public pool water and submitting the results to the CDC.   For a free test kit and more ideas about improving pool water safety, go to Healthy Pools, a CDC web site.
