I won't go swimming in public pools. It's just too nasty.

The lake is "treated" by virtue of massive dilution effect, and thousands of gallons of new water entering almost daily.

Anyone who is worried about urine at a sandbar, but not about fish and duck excrement in the water, is using some very strange logic.

Hanging out at the sandbar is fun, and I am not so foolish as to think the rest of the world is "sterile" relative to a sandbar. There is probably more "urine" on the door handles of most public places than there is at the average sandbar at peak discharge
