LAKE GEORGE, N.Y. (AP) - State environmental protection officials are still trying to trace the source of bacteria that has forced the several closures of a popular Adirondack lake beach dating back to last summer.

With the busy tourist season kicking in this week, Million Dollar Beach on the southern end of Lake George is open again after its latest closure last week due to elevated E. Coli bacteria levels in the water.

The Post-Star of Glens Falls reports (https://bit.ly/2sWDYCs ) public works crews and water quality experts have spent hundreds of hours trying to find where the bacteria is coming from. So far they’ve been unable to come up with any conclusions.

Official say the effort has included using a camera to inspect underground storm water and sewer lines in the village of Lake George.
