Beltzville Lake High Bacteria Levels closes again to swimmers

It is not even two weeks ago┬ásince I swam 1.2 miles in Beltzville Lake for the Black Bear Half Iron Triathlon and they are closing it to swimming again due to high bacteria levels. So, what was the level when we swam in it? Or was all those triathletes peeing in the water that caused it? I guess since I was in the second to last wave it doesn’t really matter then.

This is just another reason in addition to the poor road conditions why I am thinking I am not do this race again.
