Echo Lake IS closed

Wednesday, August 26, 2015

It's not an error this time, Echo Lake really is closed.

The bacteria levels have risen to an unsafe level and the lake has been posted. It joins Hidden Lake, which has been closed and continues to have high bacteria levels.

The current conditions in both lakes make them unsuitable for recreational water activities. Signs indicating closure will remain in place at Hidden Lake, and signs will be posted at Echo Lake this morning.

Results from the next sampling will be available on Tuesday, September 1.

Both lakes will remain closed until such time as it is safe to reopen.For questions, contact Surface Water Quality Specialist Melissa Ivancevich at (206) 801-2453.
