Chatfield State Park’s swimming beach has reopened after being closed for two days last week when high levels of the E. coli bacteria were discovered in the water.
On the morning of June 3, Colorado Parks and Wildlife closed thebeach after a water test showed E. coli levels just above the allowed limit of 235 organisms per 100 milliliters of water. The swimming beach was closed as soon as the testes were completed.
By late afternoon June 4, bacteria levels had decreased well below the allowed limit and the beach reopened.
