Iowa officials say E. coli level in Beeds Lake State Park high; swimmers warned to use caution


HAMPTON, Iowa — Officials have issued a swimming advisory at a state park in Iowa because of higher than normal levels of E. coli.

The Mason City Globe Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/1H6dU96 ) that Beeds Lake State Park in Franklin County was placed under the advisories following recent water tests.

The advisory means officials do not recommend swimming at the park until the bacteria levels are back to normal. Anyone swimming at the part should shower afterward and avoid ingesting water.
