Aug. 13, 2019 lake test results: DeWitt Park closed, Paddock Hooker Lakes Assoc. beach on caution

DeWitt Park on Silver Lake is closed and Paddock Hooker Lakes Association beach on Paddock Lake is under cautions 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.

The results from Monday that prompted the closure and caution are:

  • DeWitt Park Beach — More than >2419 E.coli/100 mL.
  • PHLA beach — 816 E.coli/100 mL.

The above sites were scheduled to be re-sampled Tuesday.
