After testing high for bacteria, Crystal Lake is back open, Patch reports. Crystal Lake became unsafe due to high E. coli and fecal coliform bacteria levels on July 1, prompting the city to issue an alert that no one – people or pets — should have contact with the water.

Of course, the lake is technically closed for swimming this year and the city has said that “trespassing will not be permitted,” something not everyone seems to feel applies to them.
