MANCHESTER, NH — The Manchester Health Department announced late Tuesday that the public beach at Crystal Lake was closed to swimming due to elevated levels of E. coli bacteria.

The elevated bacteria levels were identified in a routine water sample taken on Monday, July, 20, 2015. Water samples taken at other locations on Crystal Lake did not find elevated levels of E. coli bacteria.

The Health Department will be re-sampling the area on July 21, 2015. Once E. coli levels are found to be acceptable, the public beach will be re-opened for swimming.
