Outbreaks associated with exposure to treated recreational water can be caused by pathogens or chemicals in venues such as pools, hot tubs/spas, and interactive water play venues (i.e., water playgrounds). During 2000–2014, public health officials from 46 states and Puerto Rico reported 493 outbreaks associated with treated recreational water. 

Next week marks the 14th running of the Healthy and Safe Swimming Week, which focuses on simple steps that swimmers and pool operators can take to reduce the risk of RWIs. WAHC 2018 offers a track with a strong focus on RWI Prevention. When you attend the RWI Prevention Track, you can incorporate what you learn in next year’s Healthy and Safe Swimming Week! 

Who Should Attend?
New this year, the Design & Engineering WAHC track covers topics beneficial for Aquatic Directors, Parks and Recreation Officials, Homeowner Association Managers, and, of course, Builders and Designers.
