MAHC Network September Webinar: Cyanuric Acid and the Fecal, Vomit, and Blood Response

September 19, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Join NACCHO and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for the latest bi-monthly Model Aquatic Health Code (MAHC) Network webinar on September 19, 2017 at 1:00-2:00 pm ET. This presentation will discuss the considerations related to cyanuric acid and chlorine essential to ensure effective treatment of recreational water when responding health risks caused by fecal, vomit, and blood matter. Cyanuric acid is a chemical frequently used to adjust pH levels in pools that also slows the rate at which chlorine kills bacteria in pools. As a result, the presence of this chemical can potentially interfere with preventative or response efforts and increase the risk for waterborne illness. Webinar attendees will hear from Michele Hlavsa, Chief of CDC’s Healthy Swimming Program, who will discuss CDC Guidelines and other resources to address this issue.
