DeWitt Park beach  on Silver Lake is closed to swimming after testing on Monday showed elevated E.coli levels there.

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.

Monday’s result at DeWitt Park beach on Silver Lake was 1,120 E.coli/100 mL. That location was expected to be re-sampled Wednesday.

Full results reported Aug. 14, 2018 by the Kenosha County Division of Health were:
