A Wake County beach has reopened after it was closed twice within a week. The county closed the Lake Wheeler beach last Tuesday. It said there was high bacteria levels in the water.

Officials closed the same lake exactly a week before for the same reason.

Although swimming was banned, Lake Wheeler remained open for fishing, water skiing and other activities.

In response to the recent closing of that beach and the Falls Lake beach last month, the county announced a new Web site for Wake County lakes.

The site posts temporary closures and announces the reopening of beaches and lakes in Wake County.
