Only way I or mine would be swimming at Shadow Cliffs is if the water was filtered and chlorinated. Oh yeah, the EBRPD board decided to dismantle the wonderful water slides and all thats left to swim in is a septic hole in the ground. Pass.

I'm very skeptical that the source of the "poop" was geese. More likely it was the clientele. I used to maintain pools in the Central Valley. I no longer swim in public swimming pools, let alone a body of water that is not chlorinated.

unfortunately, the public has no clue what they are exposed to on a daily basis...be CAUTIOUS!

You can cook the rat hair before eating it. It's pretty tough to cook the toilet water at Shadow Cliffs before swimming or accidentally drinking.

I have an idea. Why don't we make the Shadow Cliffs area into a big dog park. That might take care of the geese and solve our dog park issues.
