(LISLE, NY) The Broome County Department of Parks, Recreation and Youth Services has reopened the Greenwood Park Beach.
Earlier this week routine sampling of the water showed the E. coli level above acceptable. E. coli is naturally occurring in bodies of water such as lakes and ponds and levels normally fluctuate throughout the season.
A second test of the water was ordered, and levels are back to acceptable. The waterfront will reopen Thursday at 12:30 p.m.
Beaches at Nathaniel Cole Park and Dorchester Park also remain open.
