Water Venues - Pools, Spas & Beaches

IU Environmental Health and Safety monitors all recreational and therapeutic water facilities owned or operated by IU to ensure that users are not exposed to bacteria and other agents that may cause recreational water illnesses. Keep in mind the following tips when you are using water facilities at IU.

  • Practice good hygiene. Shower with soap before swimming and wash your hands after using the toilet or changing diapers. Germs on your body end up in the water.
  • Don't swallow the pool water. Avoid getting water in your mouth.
  • Don't swim when you have diarrhea. You can spread germs in the water and make other people sick.
