Concerning Levels of E. Coli in Park Lake

The Mid-Michigan District Health Department contacted the Township today regarding E. Coli in Park Lake. We are part of a new testing initiative to ensure the water was safe to recreate in (i.e., swimming, fishing, etc.)
Recent testing has indicated a concerning level of E. Coli, which can cause illness. Residents are strongly encouraged to avoid swimming in Park Lake at this time.
Young children, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems are at the greatest risk. The most common symptoms of exposure are general gastrointestinal discomfort and skin rashes. Most cases of illness resulting from swimming in contaminated water are unpleasant but mild and do not require medical treatment.
Additional testing will be conducted tomorrow morning, June 16, 2021. Should the results remain high, further action will be taken to close the beach.
We will stay in close contact with the MMDHD and provide updated information as we receive it.
