PHLA beach and DeWitt Park beach remain closed to swimming after re-test

The Paddock Hooker Lake Association beach on Paddock Lake and the DeWitt Park beach on Silver Lake remain closed after retesting still showed elevated E.coli levels there.

Test results from a Wednesday sampling were:

  • PHLA: 1,300 E.coli/100 mL.
  • Silver Lake-DeWitt Park: 1,553 E.coli/100 mL.

Readings of over 235 E.coli/100mL result in a swimming advisory. Readings of over 1,000 E.coli/100 mL result in a beach being closed to swimming.

The two beaches were set to be resampled again Thursday.

The beaches were initially closed after routine sampling Tuesday also showed elevated E.coli levels.

This testing is performed by the Kenosha County Division of Health.
