Water Quality at Red Rocks

Water Quality for Red Rocks Beach

Red Rocks Park Swimming Area is tested every Monday and Wednesday during the season (and whenever deemed necessary) to help ensure safe swimming conditions to the public. Anytime a sample comes back higher than the revised State Standard of 235 organisms per 100 milliliters of water in a single sample. The Swimming Area will be closed as it is a potential health risk. Counts that cause us to close the beach will have a CLOSED in the Results column. Proper signage will be posted and Red Rocks Park Staff will inform patrons of water conditions upon entry to the park.

Visual inspections are made on a daily bases while the park is open for the season, and may result in Beach Closings regardless of the water sample testing, as a preventive measure. This will include the possibility of Blue-Green Algae Blooms present in the area. New tests will be done at these times to determine water quality and safety.
