These illnesses are more common in summer. Waterborne illnesses are under reported because most recreational activity occurs in unsupervised venues or on private property, and participants tend to disperse before the illness occurs. Symptoms of waterborne illness are primarily gastrointestinal but upper respiratory and skin manifestations also occur. GI symptoms are usually self limited and supportive treatment may be all that is necessary. However some infections can cause significant morbidity and mortality. Respiratory infections are typically mild and selflimited. However there are some diseases that develop and is unrecognized,mortality may be as high as 10%. Skin manifestations such as cellulitis can result in serious illness, amputation and even death. Early antibiotic treatment is important.
