Public Health Madison & Dane County

Public Health Madison & Dane County tested bacteria levels and checked for algae blooms on 8/19/19. The results were acceptable. The shallow near-shore temperature was 82°F. Even though the results were acceptable at the time of monitoring, algae levels can change quickly depending on waves and wind. Always take a look at water conditions before you or your pet enter the water and avoid contact with algae blooms.
