Jungle Lake at Walter Fuller Park safe for recreational uses
St. Petersburg, Fla. (October 22, 2018) – After continued sampling and retesting of waters in and around “Jungle Lake” at Walter Fuller Park, all signs warning of possible contamination have been removed from the shoreline.
Signs advising against any contact with the lake in Walter Fuller Park had been posted just over three weeks ago following the discovery of a cross-connection made by contractors at the nearby Northwest Water Reclamation Facility. This cross-connection allowed reclaimed water used to back flush new filters at the plant into the lake.
Results from all of the testing performed by the City’s Environmental Compliance Division are available on the interactive Recreational Water Quality website: http://www.stpete.org/water/waterquality.php.
