A “No Swimming” advisory was lifted on Saturday for Ramsey Creek Beach on Lake Norman in Cornelius.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services sampled the water quality several times on Friday, and the highest measure was 5 col/100mL, which indicates good water quality, Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation announced on its website.
The beach will operate from 10 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Sunday.
The no swim advisory was issued on Friday after elevated fecal coliform levels were found.

Chris Matthews from Park and Recreation said that on Monday, sampling results showed the water to have seven of the colonies per 100 mL of water. Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Services issued the advisory after receiving sampling from Wednesday, when the count dramatically jumped up to 450 col/100mL.
This is well over the acceptable tolerance level of 200 col/100mL.
