Jackson County officials will not post warning signs at Lake Jacomo today after test results showed that E. coli levels were well within acceptable standards, a county spokesman said.
Jeph Burroughs-Scanlon said the samples were taken Saturday and the results came back this morning. More samples are being taken today for testing, but Burroughs-Scanlon said there is no danger to people celebrating Labor Day weekend at the lake.
There were concerns Saturday that Lake Jacomo might have been contaminated after a sewage spill tainted Prairie Lee Lake, which is connected to Lake Jacomo. Warning signs were posted at Prairie Lee Lake.
