Patoka Lake Beach Closed to Swimmers For E. Coli

PATOKA LAKE -- Patoka Lake beach is closed to swimmers at this hour following weekly E. Coli tests exceeding the acceptable limit for lakes.

Earlier today, we told you Lincoln State Park in Spencer County had the same issue.

Officials at Patoka Lake say this will not impact Thunder Over the Patoka events.

On social media, officials said they would update us when the water was acceptable for swimming. They are hoping that can be done by sometime Friday afternoon.
