IOWA CITY, Iowa (KCRG) - Iowa City city leaders say swimming is not allowed at Terry Trueblood Recreation Area after new reports showed high bacteria levels.
City leaders said the advisory is due to E. coli levels detected in Sand Lake.
The advisory for the recreation area, located at 579 McCollister Boulevard, will last until the water quality improves.
Johnson County officials said the bacteria issues were caused by low water levels.
People are still allowed to kayak, but no swimming is allowed.
