Silver Lake - Water Testing, Beach Guidance

Town Beach is routinely tested every Tuesday during the Beach season and results are posted on Wednesdays.

A beach will be closed if the bacteria test exceeds either of these limits: 235 E.Coli/100 ml. of water in a single sample, or a geometric mean of 126 in the last 5 consecutive samples.

A significant algae bloom can cause a closure of the beach.

Note:  A test that appears to be an anomaly will be retested as soon as possible for confirmation.

A beach closure will not be implemented based on a single test which appears to be an anomaly.
