Paddock Hooker Lake Association beach on Paddock Lake is under a swim caution after testing on Tuesday showed elevated E.coli levels in those locations.

Cautions are issued for results of more than 235 E.coli/100 mL. Beaches are closed to swimming for a test result of more than 1,000 E.coli/100 mL.

Tuesday’s result at PHLA on Paddock Lake was 387 E.coli/100 mL. That location was¬†expected to be re-sampled Wednesday.

Full results reported Aug. 8, 2018 by the Kenosha County Division of Health were:

  • Randall — Powers Lake, 178 E.coli/100 mL (reported by town of Randall).
  • Salem Lakes — Lake Shangri-la #1, 36 E.coli/100 mL;¬†Lake Shangri La #2: 2 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.
