The City will notify the public when it is safe to resume activities in the Mission Lake, Mission Beach, and Mission Bay areas. In the meantime, the City requests the public’s cooperation in following all posted signs and to avoid the area.

“Due to the length of time the overflow occurred, the City recommends citizens avoid any contact with the lake and beach, as well as abstain from any recreational use of the beach. If the public comes into contact with water or soil potentially affected by the overflow, they should shower and wash clothes thoroughly as soon as possible.” said City Manager, Mike Tvenge.
