Water conditions trigger closing of Robbins Island swimming beach

Email

WILLMAR -- The Robbins Island swimming beach on Foot Lake remains closed after routine testing last week uncovered a high fecal count.

Water conditions at the beach are most likely due to a combination of the local Canada goose population, runoff from recent rainfall and typical late-summer stagnant water, said Steve Brisendine, Willmar Community Education and Recreation director.

"We want to try to keep it safe," Brisendine said. "It's just something we're concerned about."
