The Idaho Department of Environmental Quality has lifted its E. coli contamination warning for Sandy Point Beach recreation area at Lucky Peak, saying bacteria levels have dropped and it's now safe to go in the water. The no-swimming warning has been in place since July 8. DEQ said in an announcement, “Sampling now shows that E. coli is no longer a threat to public health. Routine monitoring will continue and, if E. coli levels increase above standards, the public will be informed.”
