UPDATE: EAGLE ISLAND STATE PARK WATER QUALITY
EAGLE – (July 13, 2014) The Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation (IDPR) works in partnership with the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) to test the water quality at all public swimming areas within every Idaho State Park.
Eagle Island State Park is tested regularly, at multiple locations. The most recent water quality test for Eagle Island was conducted Wednesday, July 9, 2014. The water within the park was deemed safe.
Given high temperatures in the last several days, additional testing has been scheduled to able Eagle Island State Park staff to proactively monitor the water conditions at the park and insure the safety of our patrons.
In the event of concern, IDPR would immediately notify customers.
IDPR works diligently to monitor the conditions and safety of public swimming areas within our state parks but would like to remind individuals to take precaution and be mindful not to ingest water from naturally occurring, non-chlorinated, outdoor bodies of water.
