A popular swimming area at Center Hill Lake in Smithville has been closed after the US Army Corps of Engineers in Nashville announced that E. coli has been detected in the water.
E. Coli was found at the Ragland Bottom Day Use Beach. The area is still open for picnicking and boat launching. No other beaches on the lake have been impacted. Anyone with questions can contact the Center Hill Lake Resource manager’s office at 931-858-3125
