MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Mountain Home Project Office has reopened the swim beaches at Cranfield on Norfork Lake and Oakland Park on Bull Shoals Lake. Bacteria levels are now within the acceptable range which allow the swim beaches to reopen.

They were closed on May 19 because of higher than acceptable E. coli levels that were found during routine testing.
