Weekly test results for some Western Kenosha County lakes showed E.coli levels below beach warning or closure levels.

Results reported Wednesday, June 29 by the Kenosha County Health Department were:

  • Silver Lake — Silver Lake County Park, 6 E.coli/100 mL.
  • Paddock Lake — Old Settlers Park, 23 E.coli/100 mL; North Shore Beach Association, 54 E.coli/100 mL; Hoag Beach, 52 E.coli/100 mL; PHLA Beach, 18 E.coli/100 mL.
  • Wheatland — Lilly Lake, 3 E.coli/100 mL.

The State Department of Health recommends posting warnings at beaches when the test results indicate a E.coli level of 300/100ml or more and closing a beach when test results exceed E.coli 1000/100ml. Wheatland (Lilly Lake) has a policy of posting an advisory for a level of E.coli 235/100 mL or more and closing a beach when test results exceed E.coli 1000/100ml.
