UPDATE: Dog Park Reopens following E-Coli Advisory

The Public Works Department in Pleasant Prairie received the results of a new test and the e-coli levels were deemed safe for pets.

The department takes water samples every Tuesday and the results are sent back Friday morning.

Friday's results showed a level of 140cfu/100mL and the advisory has been removed.

A sample from the dog pond taken on July 28th had a result of 420cfu/100mL putting it in the \"advisory\" range.

John Steinbrink, the director of public works, tells CBS 58 a level of 0-235 is safe, 236-999 causes an advisory and over 1000 causes immediate closure.
