Regarding “Bacteria a concern for some swimmers at the Woodward Reservoir” (Page A1, June 18): One visitor said “he wished park officials had done more to warn visitors” about the bacteria levels in the water.
This lack of communication allowed many visitors to be infected.
Those visitors simply wished to enjoy a nice day and go home safe and happy. Instead, they went home sick.
The county should place large, visible signs about the bacteria. It could then keep or regain the trust of citizens.

Editor’s note: Recent tests at Woodward Reservoir have found the coliform and E. coli bacteria counts have fallen significantly.
