Aug. 6, 2019 lake test results: Paddock Hooker Lakes Association, Lance Park, Camp Lake, Rock Lake closed

Beaches at Paddock Hooker Lakes Association beach on Paddock Lake, Lance Park beach on Lake Mary. Camp Lake and Rock Lake are closed to swimming after testing 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.

Test results from Monday that prompted the closures were:
