 BEACH SAMPLING IS COMPLETE FOR THE 2013 SEASON

The Lake County General Health District monitors bacterial water quality at Mentor Headlands State Park Beach and Lake Metroparks Fairport Harbor Lakefront Park daily between Memorial Day and Labor Day.  Samples are collected daily (including weekends and holidays) and results are reported 24 hours later.

Beach water is sampled for E. coli bacteria. When the bacterial count exceeds the single sample standard of 235 E.coli/100 ml sample, advisory signs are posted at the beaches. In the absence of a warning sign, use common sense to evaluate the lake conditions prior to swimming. It is recommended bathers avoid the water for 24-48 hours after a heavy rain of one-half inch or more in a 24 hour period, or if the lake appears to be very rough and dirty.

Lake County will also be sampling the Ashtabula County Beaches during the 2013 beach season three days per week, Monday, Wednesday & Friday. The sampling frequency was reduced from four days a week due to budget cuts. The public can express their comments regarding reduction in sampling to the Ohio Department of Health at BEH@odh.ohio.gov
