E. Coli Bacteria results for monitored county lakes

GENESEE COUNTY — All monitored points in Genesee County are currently in compliance with State guidelines for bacterial concentrations at bathing beaches. Water testing is available for all Genesee County public beach operators; please contact us for more information.

Exposure to any recreational water can be a potential health risk. Gastrointestinal and dermatological illnesses have been associated with recreational water exposure. Rain and subsequent runoff can dramatically increase E. coli bacteria levels in lakes and other surface waters. Therefore, the Genesee County Health Department is advising that all beach patrons exercise due caution with total body contact in area surface waters after rain events. — G.G.
