Oakland swimming area closed due to E coli

OAKLAND, Maine (WABI) - A public swimming spot in Oakland has been closed after a water test came back positive for E. coli.

The beach on Old Belgrade Road at Messalonskee Lake is closed and it's not known how long it will remain so.

Town officials say it's likely the recent high temperatures and goose droppings in the water are to blame.

The town's swimming area on McGraw Pond at Pleasant Point Park is still open.
