Lakeville beach closes after testing positive for E. coli 18 Aug 11

Another Lakeville beach has closed because of bacterial contamination, meaning all three of the city’s beaches have been shut down at one time or another this summer.

The city closed Orchard Lake beach yesterday after water tests showed E. coli bacteria above acceptable levels. The Star Tribune reports that water samples will be tested daily until the levels are acceptable for public swimming. The beach will be closed at least through the weekend because of a delay in receiving test results.
