The Kitsap Lake swimming beach has once again been temporarily closed due to high levels of E. coli bacteria in the water.
The decision to close the beach was made by the Kitsap Public Health District after samples taken on July 10 were found to be at an unacceptable level.
Aside from swimming, activities to avoid include any where people may come into contact with the water or where it get into the mouth, nose or eyes. Children, the elderly and those with compromised immune systems are at greatest risk of getting sick.
A public advisory against swimming in Kitsap Lake has been in place since June 12 due to the potentially toxic cyanobacteria in the water.
