There's too much goose poop in the water at Brown's Beach on Saratoga Lake. That's the official report from the town of Stillwater, who manages the beach. E.coli bacteria was detected during a test of the water on Friday. The health state health department says the levels are too high for recreational swimming.
The beach was shut down on Friday and remains closed until the bacteria levels come down. In the meantime, the town is looking for ways to keep geese and seagulls away from the beach.
This is the first time this year it has been shut down.
