Wake County has once again closed the recreational swimming area at Beaverdam Beach at Falls Lake due to elevated levels of bacteria.The facility has been repeatedly closed for days at a time this year after water testing revealed excessive bacteria.

The lake is not closed to fishing, and other swimming areas at Falls Lake will remain open.

Officials say the beach will reopen when bacteria levels return to acceptable levels.
