BOONVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – The beach and water slide at Scales Lake will be open on Friday, as E. coli levels are within normal range, according to the park’s Facebook page.

Scales Lake officials previously said employees test the water in the lake and pool weekly, and this week’s lake test showed a level of E. coli that exceeds the limit for beaches.
