Swimming in Dane County Lakes
One of the great assets of the Madison and Dane County area is the many beaches located throughout Dane County. Public Health Madison & Dane County monitors all public beaches during the swimming season, Memorial Day through Labor Day, to assure safe water quality and minimize public health risks from water-borne pathogens and toxins.
