Message from PHMDC

Public Health Madison - Dane County tested bacteria levels at the beaches on May 20, 2015. The results were acceptable. The shallow, near-shore water temperature was 59°F. Blue-green algae (Cyanobacteria) may still be present and their levels can be variable depending on the waves and wind. Beachgoers should use common sense and avoid contact with algal blooms that they may observe.
