It doesn’t take very long for Lake of the Ozarks Public Beach-1, off highway-42, to come under the scrutiny of the Department of Natural Resources’ weekly beach status report.

PB-1 is on the DNR’s short list of two public beaches statewide where swimming is not recommended this weekend because of identified high E-coli levels which, typically, occur after periods of heavy rain which we have had over the past week or two here in the lake area. The other public beach where swimming is not recommended is Trail of Tears in Jackson.

Two other beaches, Pomme de Terre in Hermitage and Pittsburg, are closed as of Thursday due to high water levels.
