WAUKESHA COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Waukesha County Parks lifeguard staffed beaches will begin to transition to "swim at your own risk" beaches beginning Tuesday, August 14.

“As summer draws to a close, we like to continue to offer swimming options for both residents and visitors,” said County Executive Paul Farrow. “The switch to all Swim at Your Own Risk beaches allows us to extend the season for as long as the weather will allow.”

Swim At Your Own Risk beaches will be open daily from sunrise to sunset.

Waukesha County park staff will continue to conduct regular daily maintenance of the beach, restrooms, and surrounding areas. Water quality testing will also continue, and water quality signs will be posted.

All swimmers must stay within shallow water section only which is designated by rope and buoys.

The designated roped area does not include the deep section at locations with docks/rafts/diving boards. Children require close adult supervision at all times.
