Laconia Beaches Cleared For Swimmers After Testing Positive For Bacteria
Three beaches in Laconia that tested positive for bacteria last week are now in the clear.
The Parks and Recreation Department says Opechee Cove, Opechee Point and Weirs Beach posted advisories for high E. coli levels between Aug. 19 and Aug. 21.
Director Kevin Dunleavy tells The Citizen the beaches now all have clearance after further testing.
Most strains of E. coli are harmless, but others can cause people to become sick with symptoms including diarrhea, urinary tract infections, respiratory illnesses, pneumonia and other ailments.
