The safety of our park patrons is our department’s number one priority. Parks & Recreation staff conducts three water quality tests annually at Cane Creek Park’s lake. These water samples are tested for fecal coliform by a registered laboratory as mandated by state law. All tests for 2016 have been negative for the presence of fecal coliform in our lake. However, we do not test for the presence of the Naegleria Fowleri ameba organism.
We understand your concern regarding the recent discovery of the Naegleria Fowleri ameba at the National Whitewater Center in Charlotte, NC and encourage you to visit the following link to the Center for Disease Control website for additional information.
Thank you for your email. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.
