Update 54

- Safe Swimming After a Flood -
Lakes are open biological systems that interact with wildlife, weather, land and humans. Rainfall and flooding events can wash microbes from various sources such as wildlife, agriculture and flooded septic systems into surface waters.  It is difficult to predict how long pathogens will be present in a body of water, as there are many factors that influence their survival.  Exposure to sunlight inactivates pathogens over time. Deeper water and increased sediment can make the process take longer.  
Here are a few tips to help keep your family and pets safe if you choose to spend time on a lake after a rain event or flood.
Evaluate the water before letting your family or pets enter it. If the water has reduced clarity, color changes or abnormal odors, consider staying out of it. Use your judgement.
Don’t swallow lake water- don’t even let it in your mouth.
Supervise small children to be sure they don’t drink lake water.
Don’t swim if you have diarrhea.
Shower after swimming in any body of water.
People with weakened immune systems, infants, and pregnant women should avoid swimming in untreated waters.
If you develop diarrhea or vomiting, wound infections or skin rashes after swimming, contact your medical provider.
If you are on a boat, watch for unexpected submerged debris.
