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

Results reported Thursday, May 31, 2018 by the Kenosha County Health Department were:

  • Salem Lakes — Silver Lake at DeWitt Park Beach, 41 E.coli/100 mL; Silver Lake at Silver Lake County Park beach 3 E.coli/100 mL; Center Lake, 17 E.coli/100 mL; Camp Lake, 29 E.coli/100 mL; Rock Lake, 2 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.
