RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Two lakes at Custer State Park have reopened to swimmers following some health concerns.

Julie Brazell from Custer State Park tells KOTA-TV (https://bit.ly/2un5OLs ) test results show that E. coli is no longer a problem at Sylvan and Stockade Lakes.

The lakes were temporarily closed after high levels of E. coli were found in the water. Other activities such as boating and fishing are also allowed.

Park officials test the water every week for bacteria.
