June 2018 Water Test Results

By Water Testing

All beaches and boat ramp area are well below the 1000 fecal coriforms per 1000 mL NYS Maximum.  The boat ramp lagoon area has much higer levels but are  still within NYS guidelines.  This area has higher numbers due to  its still water, rotting vegetation, and high abundance of wildlife like frogs and snails.

See our Water Testing Page for details about NYS guidelines.
