    Carlyel Lake E Coli

    I've been hearing Carlyle lake is reporting high levels of E Coli this year. Has anyone else seen or heard this?

    Its gonna be a hot weekend up there this week and it would be good to find out now......

    High Country - I checked EPA reports online and couldn't find any data that was current enough to be of any real use. You might try checking with either the Clinton County Health Department or one of the water companies that pull water from the lake. I think you'll have better luck at one of the water treatment plants .

    I'd rather gouge my eyes out than see any more politics on what used to be an outdoors website

    Perhaps combined with unseasonably warm weather this spring giving the bacteria a chance to get a good start?
    I will never vote for or support the people who got rich sticking it to us in 2008.
