Aug. 30, 2019 lake test results: Paddock Hooker Lakes Association to remain at caution

The Paddock Hooker Lake Association beach will remain under swim caution this weekend after re-sampling there on Wednesday showed an elevated E.coli level.

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 resampling result for PHLA was 365 E.coli/100 mL. Testing is performed by the Kenosha County Division of Health.

The beach was not scheduled for resampling before the long Labor Day weekend.
