Beach Contaminated Again

It's not going to be a swimming holiday for some King George County residents this Fourth of July.

For the third time since the middle of May bacteria has closed the public swimming area at Fairview Beach.

Tests this week show high levels of enterococcus. The closure would indicate that a recently repaired septic tank is not the only cause of contamination near the beach area.

Officials plan to test the water again after the holiday.
