CLOSED PARKS

Esther Park
Woodland Park
Marshall Park
Olbrich Park
Olin Park
Tenny Park
Warner Park

Watch out because the lakes are now officially "nasty".
Just talked to a friend of mine who's doing bacterial research in our lakes (Mendota, Monona, Waubesa, etc).
He suggested to be very careful (hard to believe but this is worst than a rain runout).
The stuff in our lakes can make you really sick specially this year due to a specific type "rare" bacteria.

Mentoda is the worst lakes in terms of water quality (bacteria, yeast and not to mention the fungus types).

Yuck.
See you in the fall.

Victor

PS: Please tell people to stop feeding the birds! 90% of the e-coli from our lakes are coming directly from bird poop, yeah not from sewers.

I was waiting for Karl to post some of his "Poop" film from Olbrich. Seems to me you didn't mind the crappy water back then. ; > )

Stu, Don Ny and I all rode Esther this week. My face now has welts, hands and feet are bloody raw and vomiting day in day out and I now weigh only 125 lbs, but besides that, it was fine. Maybe I can now jump as high as Craig.

My guess is that swimming is different than us riding where we can get further from shore and when near shore, we're not getting our whole body and face in the water.

I had zero affects at all after riding that day and rode both foil board for 2+ hours and twin tip for an hour.

Thanks for the heads up.....Bob

Rumor has it that if you scoop some up and put it on a hamburger it tastes amazing but it doesn't work out in the long run.
