Kitsap Lake reopens as E. coli levels now considered safe

As E. coli levels at Kitsap Lake have returned what are considered to be safe for human contact, the Kitsap Public Health District has reopened the swimming beach after being closed since June 3.

People visiting any swimming beach should be aware that water quality conditions can change quickly and frequently. High levels of E. coli bacteria can be caused by wildlife and pets in the water, people swimming when sick with diarrhea, a large number of swimmers, infants swimming without swim diapers, or people entering the water without showering.
