Clean Beach Treatment System
 

The Clean Beach Treatment System is a chemical-free process that creates an in-situ swimming pool - providing safe, clean water for users and minimizing beach closings due to algae and E. coli.  The Clean Beach Treatment System allows patrons to enjoy the lakes right now, as Dane County and other partners work to improve the water quality of the Yahara Chain-of-Lakes through long-term collaborations.

Experience the Clean Beach Treatment System at:

Goodland County Park on Lake Waubesa (new for 2017)
