BeacWater Quality & Conditions

Waukesha County is committed to giving our customers the best experience at our beaches; beaches are monitored regularly during swim season for E. coli bacteria and blue-green algae.

• Bacteria: Below please find results of water sampling for bacteria
• Blue-green algae: If spotted during regular visual checks, blue-green algae requires temporary closure of the beach and sampling via Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (more info).
• Recommended: Water quality, Swimmer's Itch, and weather may all be factors in your beach planning. Always consider that weather conditions can change quickly.
