Loch Alpine Lakes eColi Testing
Water sample tests for the presence and level of eColi bacteria are done twice each summer and were performed by the Lakes Committee (thanks to Cynthia Walton) on June 16. The measured eColi/100ml of water was 21 at the upper lake boat launch and 18 at the lower lake south end. The level acceptable for swimming is 88/100ml on a single test.
Loch Alpine lakes generally test in the acceptable range except following a very heavy rain that carries farm land runoff; but it clears in a few days after. Additional information is available from a professional testing company at this link: http://www.eai-labs.com/services/recreational_water.html
