Due to high levels of E. Coli in Lake Washington, Juanita Beach will be closed from June 5 through the weekend.

King County tested the water earlier this week and found levels of the bacteria on the eastern shore of the beach exceeded threshold levels for closures. There were a large number of birds in the area which may have contributed to the elevated levels of E. Coli. Crews.

County crews will sample the beach multiple times on June 6 and again on June 10. The beach will remain closed for a minimum of three days and will be reopened when E. Coli levels return to a safe range.

Updates will be posted on the city of Kirkland’s News Room website.
