Swimming Suspended in Sylvan and Stockade Lakes Due to E. Coli Outbreak

High levels of E. coli bacteria have been measured in Sylvan and Stockade lakes during recent tests. According to the Rapid City Journal, Custer State Park officials have temporarily suspended all swimming activities in both lakes until the bacteria levels return to normal. If new readings this week turn up better results, the resumption of swimming activities could return later next week.
