Public Beach
June 27, 2017:  THE BEACH HAS REOPENED
We just received test results from our sample taken on Monday morning and our tests reached acceptable levels by the EPA to allow swimming. We will continue to monitor the beach throughout the summer. We hope you have a safe and enjoyable summer on the beach!

Beach Hours

The beach is open everyday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The beach will no longer have lifeguards on duty after mid-August; however, the beach will remain open to use through Labor Day weekend at your own risk. Also, the department may close the beach on other dates as deemed necessary.

Water Quality Sign Postings
Important, Please Read
Signs will be placed on the lifeguard tower and two lifeguard chairs that will signify the current status of the beach water quality.

A GREEN good sign will be posted when E. coli counts are less than 235 units per 100 mL of water according to the EPA's good water quality guideline.

A YELLOW advisory sign will be posted when E. coli counts are between 235 and 999 units per 100 mL of water. This means that the E. coli levels are elevated, however do not warrant closing the beach per the EPA's good water quality guidelines.

A RED closed sign will be posted when E. coli counts exceed 1,000 units per 100 mL of water. This means that the counts are too high for safe swimming. The water will be retested daily until the counts reach a safe level and the beach can be reopened.

More information regarding E. coli can be found at the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources website.

??Beach counts as of 
June 27, 2017 are

4.1 & 8.4
