Swimming suspended at Jacob’s Well for foreseeable future



HAYS COUNTY, Texas – Hays County banned swimming at Jacob’s Well Natural Area for the foreseeable future due to high bacteria counts in the water.

The threat of high bacteria levels, other pollutants and poor visibility conditions are unsafe for swimming, officials said in a release.

“When swimming will be allowed again depends on factors beyond our control,” the release reads. “We will monitor those conditions daily and update the information on our website and social media pages.”

The area remains open for hiking and other activities including geocaching.

A popular recreational destination in the Hill Country, Jacob’s Well Natural Area has the second-largest fully submerged cave in Texas. The water temperature stays a constant 68°F.

The swim season began May 1. Due to the unforeseen circumstances, Hays County said it will work with individuals who made reservations affected by the closure.

I have sound knowledge of national and international issues and have covered stories across beats, including politics, parliament, legal and crime like drugs and Human Trafficking at Asian News International (ANI), where I currently work. Some of these include extensive coverage of the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, several state Assembly elections, Parliament sessions, COVID-19 pandemic and other stories of national importance. A typical working day involves copy-editing dozens of drafts, managing junior sub-editors in shifts and keeping an eye on developing stories. This added responsibility followed a couple of years of filing stories based on press briefings, bytes and inputs from reporters on the ground.
