Beach and Lake News

  • WABA Beach is open to swimming
  • Lifeguards are on duty
  • WABA will continue to monitor water quality
Water Quality Testing

Enatai Beach testing includes a daily mean of bacteria levels as well as a 3 sample geometric mean of bacteria levels.  Luther Burbank and Meydenbauer use the same testing standards.  WABA, in the past, has used these test results to determine if the beach is to remain open for swimming.  Enatai and Newcastle, according to King County Lakes and Resource Management, run high bacteria levels due to waterfowl feces and runoff from Kelsey Creek, Coal Creek and the Mercer Slough.  

WABA is going to implement a King County suggested "DIY" testing kit that is a useful tool to monitor our own bacteria levels.  3 samples are taken, 20 feet apart, and results are available in 36 to 48 hours.

In the meantime, WABA will continue to evaluate Enatai levels to determine if lifeguards will be working or if the beach is at "SWIM AT YOUR OWN RISK". 


Make sure you are not blocking driveway access, both in and out, and that large vehicles including emergency responders are able to pass.
