Testing the Lake Michigan Beaches in Kenosha
The City Parks Department collects the samples. The Kenosha County Division of Health is responsible for testing the beaches and informing the City Parks Department daily of bacteria counts so that they can post the appropriate signage for beach advisories. The water quality is posted daily from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Beaches That are Tested


Alford, Pennoyer, Simmons, Eichelman, and Southport beaches are tested regularly. Because there is no lifeguard duty at Kenosha's Lake Michigan coastal beaches, swimmers enter the water at anytime at their own risk.



Testing Frequency


Simmons and Eichelman beaches are considered medium priority beaches and are tested twice weekly. Ranked as low priority beaches, Alford, Pennoyer, and Southport are tested once weekly. If the water is contaminated at any of the beaches, those beaches are tested daily until the E. coli level returns to below the standard of 235 E. coli/100 ml of sample. 8
