The Lake Shelbyville beaches' situation is slowly improving. Dam West Beach and Sullivan Beach have both been opened to the public after heavy rainfall this spring brought high water levels to the lake, forcing the beach closures.
Sarah Haslett is a Natural Resources Specialist at Lake Shelbyville and appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM morning show live from our Downtown Shelbyville studios. She says there are other beaches still closed, but they should reopen soon.
Haslett says the news is all positive when it comes to the boat ramps on Lake Shelbyville.
Haslett says admission is $2 per pedestrian or $5 per vehicle for anyone looking to come out and enjoy the beaches this summer.
