Aug. 1, 2019 lake test results: DeWitt Park beach closed; PHLA open

DeWitt Park beach on Silver Lake is now closed and Paddock Hooker Lakes Association beach is open after retesting for E.coli on Wednesday.

The State Department of Health recommends posting warnings at beaches when test results indicate a E.coli level of 235/100mL or more and closing a beach when test results exceed E.coli 1000/100mL.

The result that prompted the DeWitt Park beach closure was more than 2,419 E.coli/100 mL. DeWitt Park is set to be re-sampled Thursday.

The PHLA beach was fully opened after a test result of 163 E.coli/100 mL.
