Chatfield State Park's swim beach is temporarily closed due to a higher than average level of bacteria.  this only affects the wimming area, and not other activities like boating, waterskiing, fishing, or picnicking.  The bacteria has been identified as E. coli, and may have occurred due to high temperatures.  The swim beach will reopen once a new water test is done and the E. coli levels are at an allowable level.
