Weather and Lake Springfield Water Co-Operate

Triathletes,
It is with great pleasure that we can report the water at Lake Springfield is ready for 600 swimmers. Bacteria counts are single digits and lowest we can recall.
Michelle Nicol and Kim Lucas from CWLP have been repeatedly testing the water around all points of the course and the entire area is perfect for a swim. These two professional lake managers have gone beyond the call of duty with testing and re-testing the entire new swim course.
CWLP in cooperation with the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency even conducted an algae test as a proactive measure due to some algae concerns in some Illinois lakes. Lake Springfield tested negative.
This means we have a perfect lake to swim in and the weather forecast is perfect triathlon weather with a high of 76 and cloudy.
PR’s will be set and we know you will enjoy your triathlon and now you know the lengths taken to ensure your safety at our triathlons. Your safety is our driving force.
See you Saturday for a beautiful day of Triathlon.
