Two Paddock Lake beaches closed for E. coli level

Two beaches on Paddock Lake have been closed after high readings of E. coli showed up in tests.

The beach at Old Settlers Park and the Paddock-Hooker Lake Association beaches are the closed beaches, said village administrator Tim Popanda.

Readings of 300 E. coli/100 mL to 999 E. coli/100 mL trigger a warning. Readings of 1,000 E. coli/100 mL or higher trigger a closure.

Old Settlers had a reading of 1046 E. Coli/100 mL and PHLA Beach had a reading of 2,419 E.Coli/100 mL.

The two other beaches on Paddock Lake, both on the north side of the lake, had readings of 10 E.Coli/100 mL. They will remain open.

The beaches will remain closed until a test with a reading of less than 300 E.Coli/100 mL, Popanda said.
