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.

Boise is working to boost water quality in some local swimming ponds to help keep them open this summer.
