MANCHESTER, NH – The Manchester Health Department announced Thursday that the public beach at Crystal Lake will remain closed to swimming due to elevated levels of  E. coli bacteria. The elevated bacteria levels were identified in routine water samples taken on Monday, August 1, Tuesday, August 2 and Wednesday August 3, 2022. Water samples taken at other locations on Crystal Lake did not find elevated levels of E. coli bacteria. 

The Health Department has re-sampled the area today and results are expected on  Friday August 5, 2022. Once E. coli levels are found to be acceptable, the public beach will be re-opened for swimming. A press release will be issued accordingly.
