Fecal incident response recommendations for pool staff : what do you do when you find poop in the pool?
Filetype[PDF-643.11 KB]

  • Description:
    • These recommendations are for responding to fecal incidents in chlorinated recreational water venues.

    • Improper handling of chlorine-based disinfectants can cause injury. Follow proper occupational safety and health requirements when following these recommendations.

    • Pool Closures: Fecal incidents are a concern and an inconvenience to both pool operators and patrons. Pool operators should carefully explain to patrons why the pool needs to be closed in response to a fecal incident. Understanding that pool closure is necessary for proper disinfection and protection of the health and safety of swimmers is likely to promote support rather than frustration. Pool closures allow chlorine to do its job — to kill germs and help prevent recreational water illnesses (RWIs).
