North Wood County Park Beach Open – Bacteria Count Safe

North Wood County Park Beach is open for swimming. Two consecutive water samples collected from the beach have indicated that the beach water was safe at the time of collection. Please keep in mind that heavy rain can affect water quality and it is advisable to avoid swimming for 24 to 48 hours following heavy rain events. All other Wood County beaches are open as well. 

The Wood County Health Department will continue to test the water quality of Wood County beaches through the end of August. If you have questions regarding water quality testing at Wood County beaches, you may call the Wood County Health Department at 715-421-8911 or 715-387-8646, or the Wood County Parks and Forestry Department at 715-421-8422.
