If you have a complaint about a pool, call us!

Deciding whether or not to Swim in a Lake?

Before swimming always be aware of recent weather. Heavy rainfall or strong winds increases bacterial levels in beach waters. This may increase your risk of getting an infection. To avoid infection you must be aware of recent weather conditions to decide when you should swim at the beach

Did it rain heavily yesterday or today?

YES—don’t swim today

NO— Go ahead and swim

Was it very windy and wavy yesterday or today?

YES— don’t swim today

NO—go ahead and swim

Inspectors regularly sample water at area beaches during the summer months to ensure they are safe for swimming.
