Water quality test results in
The EPA took water samples from several locations around the lake in late August 2020. Test results have confirmed that the lake is safe for recreational use, with no detectable concentrations of PFAS in the water samples collected from West Lakes at any of the sampling locations. Traces of PFAS were found in stormwater, which feeds into the lake system, but at levels that were well below the national standard.
These results confirm our previous advice that it is safe for swimmers and rowers to use the lake. Fish samples collected from the lake are also being analysed and we will provide a further update when we have those results.
