Heading to the Beach?

Environmental Health, Healthy Lifestyles, Water Quality

 If you are planning an outing to the beach, please be sure to visit the updated Beach Health website at www.wibeaches.us before you go.  There is information about water quality and whether or not a beach is open or closed due to E.coli contamination.  Water quality information is available for both Lake Michigan beaches and inland lakes. 

 

The CDC also has some good information about swimming safely at www.cdc.gov/migrated_content/general_information/healthyswimming/safeswimming.html.  It would be a good idea to review sun safety tips at www.cdc.gov/cancer/skin/basic_info/prevention.htm before spending a day at the beach.
