Clark County Public Health has lifted the swim beach warning at Vancouver Lake.

Public Health issued a warning for the swim beach June 2 after one water sample collected during routine testing showed elevated levels of E. coli bacteria. Additional water samples collected by Public Health on June 6 showed elevated levels of E. coli bacteria, prompting Public Health to close the lake to swimming and wading.

The closure was lifted June 23, but a warning remained in place.

The latest water samples did not show elevated levels of bacterial contamination, prompting Public Health to lift the warning.

Public Health will continue to monitor designated swim beaches at Klineline Pond, Battle Ground Lake and Vancouver Lake throughout the summer. Test results and information about current advisories are available at clark.wa.gov/public-health/public-beaches.
