Re: Ask a Scientist

The water in the lake gets zapped by the sun's UV rays all day round, at least during the swimming season.

And then there is more of a balanced ecosystem, with other bacteria that are harmless to us digesting any bits of poo etc etc.

Also despite the kids and birds peeing in it, the overall mass of water is huge so the dilution level should be far greater.

They take our drinking water out of the lake you know ...
