TRUMBULL COUNTY, Ohio (WKBN) – A “Bacteria Contamination Advisory” has been removed for Mosquito Creek Lake.

The advisory was issued Thursday after high levels of E. coli were detected, according to the Ohio Department of Health.

Under the advisory, children, the elderly and those with illnesses were advised against swimming until the results of further testing are received.

Mosquito Lake Park Manager Josie McKenna said that they tested the water and it took 24 hours for the results to come back. She said it showed that the bacteria levels have fallen so there is no reason for the advisory and that it is safe to use the beach and swim in the lake.

On August 9, a sample was collected from the lake and the test indicated a presence of E. coli. Since May, ODH has been conducting testing once every two weeks to check bacteria levels.
