Health officials close swimming at Rogers Park on Weeki Wachee River

WEEKI WACHEE — The swimming area at Rogers Park on the Weeki Wachee River was closed Monday by the Hernando County Health Department because of high levels of fecal coliform bacteria in the water.

The high levels pose an increased risk of infectious disease, particularly to susceptible individuals and children, according to the Health Department.

The department will continue to monitor the levels until samples show the water at the park, 7244 Shoal Line Blvd., is safe again.
