Lake Natoma Cleared for Use

Officials have given the green light for swimmers to return to Lake Natoma, after results confirmed that 10,000 gallons of sewage did not make its way in to the water. The lake was closed down for several days, as water was tested for contamination, after a spill resulted from a plumbing blockage at Folsom Prison. Many users of the lake, including students using the CSUS Aquatic Center, were turned away in the past few days as a precaution. More information is available in the Sacramento Bee.
