According to Adams Ridge, a poolside bacteria test is done every week during the summer and checked by a laboratory. Adams Ridge says the results of last Thursday’s test showed no traces of bacteria in the water.

Following an inspection Tuesday, Adams Ridge said the Department of Health and a pool maintenance company took water samples for investigation. The results will take up to 72 hours.
