Going for a dip? Beach monitoring reports are being released every Friday

Statewide Iowa — Summer’s here and Iowans are hitting the beaches. Dan Kendall, senior environmental specialist with the Iowa DNR, says there’s a whole crew of people who are spending the season testing the water quality in our many lakes, some 246 of them.

While “no swimming” advisories have already been issued for a few locations in the state, Kendall says that’s not unusual.

Kendall says it’s a snap to find the latest beach and lake condition reports on the agency’s website, Iowa-D-N-R-dot-gov.

Those lake condition reports are issued every Friday throughout the summer.
