July 16, 2019 lake test results: Lake Shangri-la #1 and Camp Lake under swim caution

Lake Shangri-la #1 and Camp Lake are under swim cautions after testing Monday showed elevated E.coli levels there.

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.

The Monday results prompting the closures and caution are:

  • Camp Lake — 291 E.coli/100 mL.
  • Lake Shangri-la #1: 517 E.coli/100 mL
