Safe Swimming on Paddock Lake

Fecal coliform is only an indicator of health risk. The higher the fecal count the higher potential the water also contains pathogens that can cause illness. Testing frequency – The beaches are tested weekly Standards for posting warnings – If fecal coliform bacteria counts exceed 300 the swim area is posted “Warning swim at your own risk”.  If fecal colifer bacteria counts exceed 1,000 the swim area is CLOSED.
