At the lower American River, colder temperatures aren’t the only reason why some are avoiding taking a dip.

“Everybody tells us not to swim in there,” said Jeuel Rodriguez, who was visiting the river.

Over several years, part of the American River was found to contain high levels of E. coli bacteria, most recently in the Tiscornia Park beach area.
