Oneida Shores Park Beach Remains Closed for Swimming

(Onondaga County, NY) Onondaga County Deputy Commissioner of Health, Linda Karmen, announced today that Oneida Shores Beach located in the town of Cicero, will remain closed for swimming due to continued high levels of E. coli bacteria in the water.  Swimming will not be allowed until bacteria levels return to acceptable levels. Karmen explained that the Health Department monitors lake water routinely and closes swimming when bacteria levels exceed acceptable standards.

Most varieties of E. coli are harmless or cause brief diarrhea. While only some types of bacteria will cause gastrointestinal illness, the presence of E. coli bacteria is an indicator of increased general bacterial action in the water. Anyone   concerned about gastrointestinal symptoms should contact their health care provider.
