About Spring Lake
Spring Lake is a fresh water lake and is not treated with chlorine or other chemicals which might be utilized in a pool or other artificial swimming pool. As a result, there are natural conditions at the lake, i.e. fish, turtles, frogs, aquatic plants, etc. Click here to find out about the water quality at Spring Lake.
The Lake County Health Department routinely tests the water at Spring Lake to verify that it is suitable for a "bathing beach". Water samples are taken monthly. While Spring Lake is a very clean lake, it is susceptible to bacteria – especially after a storm event. Bacteria can get into the lake by washing waste material from around the lake into the water. This waste material is created by wildlife living near or in the water. It is recommended that swimmers wait 24 to 48 hours after a storm event before swimming in the lake. Additionally, swimmers are encouraged to take a soap and water shower after swimming in any fresh water body of water.
Because Spring Lake is a fresh water lake, the water is cloudy. It is not possible to see to the bottom of the lake. (The lake is 14 ft. deep in some locations!) Parents need to come with their children to the beach and supervise them carefully. Parents should go over the lake rules with their children so they understand the rules and regulations are for their safety.
Safety at Spring Lake Beach
Here are some water safety tips provided by American Academy of Pediatrics to help make your summer time swim with your children a pleasant and safe one.
- Never leave your children alone or near the water, even for a moment.
- Do not let your child use air-filled "swimming aids" because they are not a substitute for approved life preservers and vests.
- It's a good idea to learn CPR if you plan on watching small children around water. Always stay within an arm's length reach of a child.
- Finally, teaching your child how to swim does not mean your child is safe in the water without you!
