Hygiene Key to Healthy Pool Season

The City of Olathe aquatics staff would like to remind you of the importance of practicing good hygiene at the pool.  Cryptosporidium bacteria can be brought into public pools through improper hygiene.

All Johnson County pools were asked to end the season early in 2011 due to an outbreak of Cryptosporidium in the area.  Basic steps from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention can help deter an outbreak this year so we can all enjoy a full pool season.
