Beach water test results this week have improved and the August 19th Swimming /Beach Water Quality Advisory has been REMOVED for Beasley Park and Reiswig Park on Wood Lake.
Enjoy the water!
Beach Water Quality Lake water is not pristine, and beach water quality can fluctuate due to a number of factors including lake currents, runoff and the outflow of creeks, changing environmental factors and waterfowl and animal waste.
Additionally, Water Quality is typically poorer in the summer when the warm weather escalates bacterial growth and swimmers stir up the lake bottom.
