Unhappy Help! White Squiggly Worms?

OK, just returned home from vacation to find many white/translucent worms squiggling through the water - they're about a half-inch long and pretty darn disgusting. What could they be and how can we be rid of them? HELP!

They may be Planaria. Have you checked out the sticky at the top of the invertebrates subsection of these forums? There is a good identification guide posted there.
