Kids and families go for a dip in Boise's Quinn's Pond on a summer morning.

The Boise Parks and Recreation department has implemented new measures to keep the ponds in city parks clean and free of e. coli, bacteria and algae blooms. Parks & Rec director Doug Holloway and Environmental Division Senior Manager Haley Falconer join Idaho Matters to talk about keeping the city's ponds clean, safe and swimmable.
