The Lawrence Outdoor Aquatic Center, 727 Ky., was closed Tuesday because of diarrhea in the water that occurred at a morning swim event.

Pool staff raised the chlorine levels as part of the cleanup procedure. The pool is expected to be open today, said Lori Madaus, aquatics supervisor.

I can't believe the fringe looney leftist socialist communist liberals from Lawrence allow this type of behavior. The city commission should be ousted for this and Barack Obama should be held accountable b/c he's an elitist.

It's no big deal. It turns out it was just a Baby Ruth bar that fell in the pool and caused mass hysteria.

I heard that krypto was discovered at a local pool a few weeks ago. I was wondering why it wasnt reported in the paper?

If it wasn't for the lousy economy, people would be able to afford air conditioning and could keep cool at home instead of relying on the local pool to cool off. This tragedy could have been averted if Bush hadn't invaded Iraq and trashed our economy.

I know several grown men that have this problem on a regular basis. Although they don't swim at the pool, they have been seen rinsing their drawers out on occasion.

dont assume it was a kid; the pool is not open to the general public in the morning. It is open for swimming lanes and lessons only. It could have been a morning swimmer. double ew.can't stop it with willpower.

DP, I thought you had decided to forgo the muni pool this summer. Shame on you.

Obviously, there is a serial pooper going to the pool this summer.

Actually you can kill crypto with chlorine if you raise the level to 20 ppm for 13 hours. www.cdchealthyswimming.com

Why assume it was a child? I guess no adults ever have diarhea? So, can someone answer why they sell adult diapers? Oh, wait must be for the right wing conservatives waiting for the black helicopters to fly over Lawrence. That way they won't miss anything.....
