Update- We tested the water at all three beaches
during the summer-
We test for ph, total coliform and fecal.
is ph neutral
2400 parts total coliform is where it would be tested more often, at 5,000 parts it becomes a concern.
Less that 200 parts fecal is good, it becomes a concern at 1000
We tested on the following dates and the results
are as follows:
(note that there may be more testings that are not represented here- not due to any deletion of
content- but due purely to my lack of note taking skills at meetings, or anywhere for that matter- I can tell you that none
of the readings were concerning at all. I will update this with any changes as soon as I can call Rita and check-
but what follows are the ones I am sure of) :
June 17- at Beach 1- total was 30 parts, fecal was less than
at Beach 2- total
was 50 parts, fecal was 11
July 1- Beach 1- total was 30, fecal was 8
July 15 Beach 3- total was 3, fecal was 4
July 29- Beach 2 - total was 30, fecal was 11
Beach 2- total was 240, fecal was 2 (240 although not high or dangerous, is more than is usual for our lake- this tends to
happen after periods of heavy rain- it clears up in a day or so. )
ph was tested 2x once it was 7.2, once
it was 7.4
So....are there still concerns about the cleanliness of the lake? Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any. We will be glad to address them.
A family moved in a few doors down from me and I approached them about becoming LPCA members. In addition
to having a say in what happens in the community, they have a child that I thought would really love the lake.
I was surprised at what the father said.
"I heard the lake isn't fit to swim in."
Someone in our community delivered that message!
