WINDSOR, Colo. — Windsor Lake is closed until further notice. The Weld County Health Department is looking into reports of illnesses from people who swam in the lake recently.

Water samples were taken on July 27 and one site showed higher levels of E. coli bacteria.

Follow up samples were taken Monday and results were pending.

The Town of Windsor says the closure of the lake at 100 N. 5th St. includes the swim beach at Boardwalk Park as well as motorized and non-motorized boating and boat rentals.

Bacterial outbreaks are always  possible in agricultural related bodies of water such as Windosr Lake.
