Carrollton Promotes Healthy Swimming
The City of Carrollton has taken a proactive approach in maintaining a safe environment for swimmers at local public pools. There have been recent scares in the metroplex regarding cryptorchism, a parasite that can cause diarrhea, abdominal cramping, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting and dehydration; however, there has been no confirmed cases of cryptosporidium linked to Carrollton pools.
“Our standard is to operate swimming pools well above the minimum state requirements,” commented Chad Hyde, Athletics Manager. “We also ‘shock’ or ‘super chlorinate’ at least once a week to help keep our chemicals balanced and our water sanitized. Our goal is to provide the safest swimming environment possible under the guidelines provided by the State of Texas.”
While taking this proactive approach helps reduce the timeframe cryptosporidium can survive, it does not totally eliminate the risk. Dallas County Health and Human Services asks that you please do not swim when you have diarrhea, avoid swallowing water, practice good hygiene, take children on frequent bathroom breaks, do not change diapers at poolside and please wash yourself and children thoroughly with soap and water before swimming. Following these practices will help keep you, your family and others safe while visiting a public pool.
If you have any questions or would like additional information, please view Healthy Swimming Habits, or contact Chad Hyde at 972-466-3083 or by email at email@example.com.
