Worms in fountain pool

We have a fountain with a combination underground and surface pool. The rocks in the pool are covered with a small worm about 1/2-3/4" long that curls up when touched - Brownish red color. Chlorine has not killed these worms. They seem to survive rather the pool is full or drained also. Any ideas?

Growing St Augustine in red select fill dirt

Building a house in Tyler Texas. Due to the original lot slope the builder needed to cut-in 4' on one side and build up 4' on the other side to get a level pad surface. This required bringing in 129 loads of red select dirt.

Now about 50% of what will be turf area or shrub beds is red select while the remaining is pretty sandy soil. Cutting out the red select and bringing other fill dirt would be expense. Some "local experts" say I need to do that while other "local experts" say the grass will be healthy as long as the red select is tilled before the sod is put down. Don't want to fight with a poor lawn as my retirement project so I thought I'd reach out to the real experts for advise.
