ATLANTA -- Stay out of the water!  National park service officials say the Chattahoochee River is under a health advisory.

Officials worry that recent rains sent bacterial levels soaring, and E Coli is the biggest concern. 

Last week's samples taken were in the 70s.  This week, the E Coli count jumped to nearly 500.

Anything above 235 is considered unhealthy.
