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.
