Lake Wheeler beach closed again

WAKE COUNTY The county closed the Lake Wheeler beach Tuesday. It says there are high bacteria levels in the water.

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

Although swimming is banned, Lake Wheeler is 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.
