Is "body contact" allowed in the water?

We know there will be some body contact with water activities (e.g., people falling off of their paddle board, canoes and kayaks) and the Water District can accommodate this.  There is even a plan to host an occasional open water swim event (July 2019, nearly Sold Out), but that will only be once or twice a year and only for a few hours.  Because of water quality concerns and the known constant water level change, a swim beach is not included in the Master Plan.
