Message from PHMDC

Public Health Madison - Dane County tested bacteria levels at the beaches on May 24, 2016. The results were acceptable. The shallow, near-shore water temperature was 71°F. Algae levels vary over time depending on waves and wind. Use common sense and avoid contact with algal blooms that you may observe. Do not let children or pets play in areas where blue-green algae blooms are evident.
