Million Dollar Beach in Lake George Closed for Poop in Water
OK, somebody is pooping in Lake George and has caused Million Dollar beach to be closed. You know who you are, so STOP!
From the Times Union:
"The state Department of Environmental Conservation shut down the beach after discovering high levels of fecal coliform. DEC also closed Dog Beach, which lies between West Brook and Million Dollar Beach.
This is the second time in five days the beach was closed due to elevated coliform levels. The beach was closed on Friday and reopened on Saturday after DEC said the levels of fecal coliform were below 1,000 colonies, which is acceptable. But results of new water samples received Tuesday afternoon showed the bacteria level spiked to 4,180 colonies per 100 milliliters"
Really, people? I know the nearest bathroom is blocks away but this is not Rio, so get your ass out of the water and hit a bathroom.
OK, to be honest, it might not be humans causing the problem. Maybe Lake George has a large pooping fish taking a dump where we swim.
