      Oneida Shores closed to swimming due to high levels of e-coli

      Oneida Shores is closed for swimming this weekend due to high levels of e-coli bacteria, according to the Onondaga County Health Department.

      Swimming will be prohibited until bacteria levels return to normal.

      â??Fatherâ??s Day is a busy weekend at Oneida Shores so we have made special accommodations to have the water tested over the weekend with the hope of re-opening the beach as soon as possible,â?? said Kevin Zimmerman, Director of Environmental Health.

      Most varieties of e-coli are harmless, or cause minor stomach problems. Elevated levels of E-coli usually means there is increased general bacteria in the water, the health department says.
