Lake test results Aug. 15, 2019: DeWitt remains closed; PHLA under caution

DeWitt Park beach on Silver Lake remains closed to swimming and Paddock Hooker Lakes Association beach is under a swim caution after resampling on Wednesday 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.

Testing on Wednesday by the Kenosha County Division of Health yielded the following results:

  • DeWitt Park more than 2,419 E.coli/100 mL.
  • PHLA: 687 E.coli/100 mL.

Both locations are expected to be re-sampled Thursday.
