— Water quality in Lake Wheeler in Raleigh has returned to normal levels, the city reported Friday. Wake County Environmental Services closed the beach to recreational activities Tuesday due to elevated levels of bacteria in the water. It was the fifth week in a row that Wake County Environmental Services closed the beach.

The beach was closed each week in the month of August. Each week, it is reopened after subsequent tests.

The city always prohibits swimming at Lake Wheeler, but allows kayaking,  sailboating and windsurfing.
