Is the water safe?

Bacteria, and rarely amoeba, do indeed float around in lakes and other bodies of water that don’t have much movement, especially when the weather gets hot. Sometimes their levels are too high and can be a danger to swimmers’ health.

In the past two decades, there has been an increase in the number of recreational water illness outbreaks associated with swimming pools, water parks, hot tubs, lakes, rivers, and oceans, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
