A swimming advisory issued by the Department of Natural Resources for Lake of the Ozarks State Park PB 1 has been lifted, according to a DNR spokesman.
The advisory was posted earlier this week after DNR officials determined that potentially hazardous conditions existed due to high water after torrential rains and flash flooding pushed the lake above the 660 full pool mark. The lake was back to normal levels by Aug. 10.
Grand Glaize Beach in Osage Beach was not affected.
DNR officials point out the advisory had nothing to do with elevated levels of E. coli bacteria, as was implied in an article posted online Thursday.
Signs posted at PB 1 refer to recent tests that show the E. coli levels are below advisory levels.
