LGA Beach Water Testing Update

September 3rd, 2017 · No Comments

The Lake George Association emailed an e-news update this past week that contained the following news:

(While still) waiting for the formal documents to be delivered, but ahead of this long Labor Day weekend, the Lake George Association wanted to pass along that the fourth round of E coli testing at six beaches around Lake George has, again, turned up no problems for recreational uses, based on the New York state Department of Health’s monitoring guidelines.

The beaches were tested on Wednesday, Aug. 30.These tests, performed by LGA Water Quality Specialist Dr. Jeremy Farrell, were separate from the testing regimen set up by each of the towns for its own beach.

Beaches tested included:

Bolton’s Veterans Park Beach
Hague Town Beach
Ticonderoga Public Beach
Gull Bay Beach
Huletts Park Beach
Fort Ann Beach.

As has been previously reported, Usher Park beach in the Town of Lake George and Shepard Park beach in the Village of Lake George are already monitored regularly, and previous reports noted they were below the threshold.
