News Release
Public Health lifts warning at Klineline Pond after water quality improves - 08/10/18

Vancouver, Wash. –  Clark County Public Health lifted the swim beach warning at Klineline Pond today, after the latest water samples did not show elevated levels of bacterial contamination.

Public Health closed Klineline Pond to swimming and wading on Tuesday, after routine testing revealed elevated levels of E. coli bacteria. Test results from water samples taken on Wednesday showed improved water quality, prompting Public Health to lift the closure on Thursday.

Public Health posted warning signs at the swim beach, however, until a second round of samples could confirm improved water quality. Those results came back today and did not show elevated levels of bacterial contamination.

Park staff removed the warning signs this afternoon.

Public Health will continue to monitor the swim beach at Klineline Pond, as well as the swim beaches at Battle Ground Lake and Vancouver Lake, throughout the summer. Test results and information about current advisories are posted on the Public Health public beaches website.
