E. coli levels safe at Kitsap Lake

Previously elevated levels of E. coli have returned to safe levels at Kitsap Lake Park’s swimming beach. Visitors however are still advised to avoid swimming and contact with the lake due to a high concentration of cyanobacteria (blue-green algae).

In a press release, the Kitsap Public Health District advised that the public continue to avoid the water at Kitsap Lake following a cyanobacteria warning issued on July 10.

Visitors are advised to avoid the lake until further notice.
