Lab results from intensive water sampling at Brandy Creek Beach this week have concluded that the water quality at Brandy Creek Beach is safe for recreational users. In reaching this conclusion, the park consulted with the Central Valley Water Quality Control Board, Shasta County Office of Environmental Health, and the regional National Park Service Public Health Officer; who all concurred with removing the precautionary public advisory which went into
effect on May 29th at Brandy Creek Beach.
Whiskeytown National Recreation Area staff will continue to monitor water quality on a biweekly basis at all of its swim beaches throughout the summer season to examine overall swim beach water quality health.
In the meantime, Whiskeytown National Recreation Area requests your help in keeping our beaches safe, clean and open for recreation through the following actions:
• Don’t feed wildlife!
• Don’t leave food unattended.
• Pick up any food scraps after picnicking.
• Use the restrooms provided.
• Shower before and after swimming.
• Access the lake from areas other than the most popular beaches.
Help keep Whiskeytown’s beaches safe, clean, and open!
