Finding Health Info About Door County Beaches:
Unfortunately, because of more “people pressure” on and around Door County the natural cleanliness of the beaches is almost always in question. Many of the beaches, especially those close to towns, are tested very frequently for water quality. Go to Door County Health Department for the latest info on which beaches are safe to swim at.
I’m not sure about the specific contaminates that are tested for, but I’m sure coliform bacteria is near the top of the list. If you haven’t made the connection yet, coliform bacteria generally have a sewage source–if you know what I mean. Don’t even chance a swim in contaminated waters. The Door County Visitors Bureau has a very nice Map to beachs around Door County (at right).
