Recreational Water Quality is becoming a national crisis. Look at what is happening on both Florida coasts, and even municipal drinking water supplies, as we have seen with Cleveland, Ohio. We have had recent incidents with infectious disease vectors being discovered in the Geist Reservoir watershed, 2 blocks from our house. The problem was identified by a local governmental lab and the problem was buried, and the public was NOT notified.

I thought you might be interested in this topic, because the problem is becoming more acute around the country.. I, and other concerned citizens, have officially launched the Make Geist Healthy Again (MGHA) initiative with the release of our facebook site (see link below). I would encourage you to visit and become members of this facebook site. Even if you do not live in the central Indiana area, it is likely this problem is already growing wherever you live, and you may be interested in seeing how we work towards making sure that public health as it relates to recreational water borne illnesses is addressed to assure public safety. www.facebook.com/groups/514522922307769/...
