From Memorial Day to Labor Day, we test water at the beaches below. We test for E. coli bacteria and blue-green algae and their toxins to protect swimmers and other recreational water users. If a water test is concerning, the beach will close for swimming until levels of E. coli bacteria or blue-green algae go down.
To learn more about how we test, see How We Monitor Beach Water Quality.
Often, when one beach is closed for swimming, others are open. Check before you head out the door.
If you are hosting an event where people will be in the water, you can request additional testing for E. coli and blue-green algae. See our fact sheet for options and costs. Contact us at 608-243-0357 to schedule testing.
