Sylvan and Stockade Lakes Reopen After E. Coli Occurrence

Two lakes in Custer State Park have officially reopened for the safe use of swimmers following concerns regarding E. coli levels, reports KOTA News. Sylvan and Stockade Lakes were temporarily closed to swimmers when high levels of E. coli were detected, but remained open to boaters and fishermen.

The lakes are tested by park officials weekly in order to determine potential safety concerns for swimmers.
