Olcott beach reopened Niagara County Health Department

OLCOTT – The beach in Krull Park on Lake Ontario was reopened to swimming Thursday by the Niagara County Health Department.

The department closed the beach Wednesday because of high bacterial readings in the daily water sample. Testing of a new sample, released Thursday, showed the levels had fallen back into the safe range.

This was the first closing of the summer at Krull Park, whose beach customarily closes a few times each year because of bacteria counts.
