Klineline Pond closed due to E. coli concerns

Posted: Updated:
VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

One day after lifeguards started patrolling a popular Vancouver pond, the Clark County Health Department has closed it to swimmers. 

Health workers said after testing the waters at Klineline Pond, they found elevated levels of E. coli. The bacteria can cause people to get sick if the water is accidentally swallowed. 

Health officials will test the pond daily, and it will reopen when the water is safe.
