Public Health Madison & Dane County tested bacteria levels and checked for algae blooms on 6/6/2023. The results were acceptable. The shallow near-shore temperature was 71°F. Even though the results were acceptable at the time of monitoring, algae levels can change quickly depending on waves and wind.
