LOVELAND, Colo. (AP) -- Loveland officials have shut down the swim beach at Lake Loveland after tests showed high levels of bacteria.

Loveland Recreation Supervisor Tim Larkin says the beach was shut down Tuesday following the discovery of high levels of E. coli bacteria.

E. coli is a type of bacteria that can cause symptoms including nausea, vomiting, stomachache, diarrhea, headache and fever. The bacteria can originate from water runoff, malfunctioning septic systems, improperly disposed diapers or waste from other swimmers, pets and birds.
