    KING COUNTY, Wash. — Between 15,000 to 20,000 gallons of raw sewage leaked into Lake Washington Wednesday morning, closing a beach.

    The county said bacteria from untreated sewage in the water is dangerous, especially to people with immune conditions.

    Germs from the sewage in the water can cause problems such as rashes, diarrhea, stomachaches, fever and more.

    Officials said it is also possible to get an infection in the eyes, ears, nose, throat or skin.

    The beach that closed was Chism Beach Park, which is where a sign was put up warning people not to swim or go in the water.

    People were also warned not to swim at Burrows Landing, located at 9505 Southeast 15th Street, or the Lake Washington shoreline between the.

    A few hours after the leak, the King County Council was told some of the power equipment, which is supposed to keep raw sewage from flowing into water, is from the 1950s and 60s and is prone to failure.
