  • Develop a long-term sustainable plan for sewage disposal; and
  • Provide guidance for road maintenance to reduce runoff.

July 23, 2021: Bacteria in Lake Wyola

Due, most likely, to the recent heavy rains, Lake Wyola has been experiencing high bacterial levels.  The state beach is red-flagged.  The three beaches of the Lake Wyola Association are currently open (as of July 23, 2021).  North Beach was briefly closed with an exceedance of the 235 E. coli per 100 ml; a retest found 40 per 100 ml.

Now that we have entered the traditional season for high bacteria counts, LWAC will begin to post the Association readings on this website.  The readings for Enterococci bacteria, which is the index organism for the state beach, are currently unavailable to us.
