The DNR will cite individuals found fishing in the toxic body of water.Nearby Calder Reservoir also has measurable amounts of bacteria, but has not yet risen to the levels found at Matt Warner Reservoir.Officials will continue to monitor the reservoir on a weekly basis and will announce the reopening of the waterway, as soon as it is once again safe.
