The public health responsibility for regulating the operation and design of water park facilities involves injury prevention and reduction and control of the spread of waterborne disease. Methods A comprehensive surveillance of water, materials, and surfaces was sampled and tested quantitatively for of total conforms, E. coli, E. coli 0157, enterococci, staphylococci, heterotrophic bacteria, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Results Pool waters were tested for compliance per state regulations for water quality; 94.5% of the pool water samples were bacteriologically compliant and 88% were compliant with free chlorine residuals for pools as stated in Wisconsin Administrative Code (1 part per million [ppm] for activity and plunge pools, 2 ppm for wading pools) (Wisconsin Administrative Code, 2002).
