Weekly test results for some Western Kenosha County lakes have one beach under a swimming caution and another closed for swimming due to high E.coli levels.

Testing on Tuesday at Paddock-Hooker Lake Association beach on Paddock Lake returned a result of 548 E.coli/100 mL, prompting a swimming caution. The county Division of Health will re-sample at PHLA beach Wednesday.

Testing on Tuesday at Center Lake returned a result of 1733 E.coli/100 mL, prompting a closure of that lake for swimming. The county Division of Health will re-sample at Center Lake Wednesday.

Results reported Wednesday, July 18, 2017, by Randall were: Powers Lake, 20 E.coli/100 mL.
