"In this heat I can't imagine any other place to be than the lake," said Kari Peterson, an avid boater.
Peterson enjoys spending her hot summers out on Keyhole Reservoir.
"Keyhole is a great lake," said Peterson.
Even with The Wyoming Department of Health detecting a significant increase in Campbell County Cryptosporidium infections, people continue to use reservoirs in the area.
"My reaction to it is there are parasites in a lot of water everywhere that we go," said Peterson. "They may be in the creeks, they may be in other lakes."
Cryptosporidium is a parasite that infects humans and animals. The parasite is contracted by swallowing contaminated food or water.
"Last weekend for example when were out there I did tell my children to be careful not to swallow the water," said Peterson
Over half of the identified cases this summer report going to Keyhole Reservoir.
"Actually last weekend I went out to the lake with my children and we boated all weekend we were on our skis and my children played in the water," said Peterson.
While The Wyoming Department of Health suggests taking safety measures when swimming, Peterson says, something like this should not stop people from living their lives.
"I don't think one little bug like this should deter anyone from enjoying the lake," said Peterson.
As of August 25th there have been 30 reported cases of Cryptosporidium infection in Campbell County.
