Aug. 28, 2019 lake test results: Paddock Hooker Lakes Association beach closed to swimming

Paddock Hooker Lakes Association beach on Paddock Lake is closed to swimming after a test Tuesday 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 test result that prompted the closure at PHLA was 1,553 E.coli/100 mL. The site was set to be re-sampled Wednesday.
