Health Department Warns About 2 Waterways 7-09-2010

The Genesee County Health Department is advising residents not two swim at Pinewood Lake in Flushing and Buttercup Beach/Holloway Reservoir in Richfield Township.
Both locations tested high for E. coli bacteria levels the week of July 5.
Officials said rain and subsequent runoff can dramatically increase E. coli bacteria levels in lakes and other surface waters.
All other monitoring points in Genesee County are said to be in compliance with state guidelines for bacterial concentrations at bathing beaches.
Genesee County waterways are tested once a week during the summer for E. coli, according to reports.
