A new government report shows one in eight public swimming pools were shut down two years ago because of dirty water or other problems, like missing safety equipment. Kiddie pools were most likely to be the germiest, from fecal matter and improper chlorination. The report is based on more than 120,000 inspections of public swimming pools in 2008, including those in parks and hotels. It’s the largest study of the topic ever done by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The new study is published by CDC in the Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.
