High bacteria levels temporarily close Webber Natural Pool, Southeast Beach at Lake Harriet

Pools shut down due to bacteria level

High bacteria levels have temporarily closed the Webber Natural Swimming Pool, as well as Lake Harriet’s Southeast Beach, in Minneapolis.

Officials said some filtration time may be needed before levels return to normal at the Webber Pool.

Members of the Park and Recreation Board say they will test samples from both sites on Thursday to see if they are safe to reopen.
