OLCOTT – Olcott Beach has reopened, after sampling tests showed the water quality was suitable for swimming, the Niagara County Health Department said on Saturday.

The Health Department ordered the closing on Wednesday because of elevated bacteria levels in the water. It was the fourth closing of the season at Olcott, but the first since early July.

The water quality at the beach will continue to be monitored and the public will be notified if there are any further problems, the Health Department said in a prepared statement.
