Olson Lake safe for swimming

By  | 

LOVES PARK, Ill. (WIFR) -- Olson Lake at Rock Cut State Park is safe for swimming after being closed earlier this summer. A silt build-up made the waters dangerous, but now water quality tests performed by the Illinois Department of National Resources are confirming the waters are safe.

Olson Lake can only reopen to the public when an approved vendor to operate the lake is put in place. The DNR hopes that will happen before Memorial Day 2018.
