The East Bay Regional Park District says the level of coliform bacteria in the water at Shadow Cliffs in Pleasanton exceeds state health levels, but it's not enough to close recreation at the reservoir.

Swimmers are being told to not swallow the water and to take a shower and dry off thoroughly after their swim.

A park spokeswoman says it's not unusual at lakes to have high bacteria readings during hot periods in the summer.
