(9/15/04) City of Orlando Water Quality test finds 46 colony forming units per 100 milliliters of sample.

State Criteria stats that if a body of water exceeds 400 colony forming units per 100 milliliters of sample, then it is not good. Anything under 400 colony forming units per 100 milliliters of samples is safe.

(9/23/04) Race Organizers have joined forces with LYNX to provide a shuttle system for athletes and spectators. The buses will run back and forth between the start/transition area at Lake Underhill Park and the finish area at Wall Street Plaza/Heritage Square. The buses will begin running at 8:30 AM with the last bus leaving from the finish area going to the start/transition at 2:30 PM.

(9/23/04) Two Central Florida Sports Commission staff members visited Lake Underhill Park today to do a final check on safety. In addition to the great water quality already confirmed, both staff members waded into the entrance and exit areas for the swim...the entrance is a concrete boat ramp with a small drop off at about waist high and the exit area is nice and sandy with a little grass as you get about waist to chest high. In addition, the Sports Commission has confirmed 4 motorboats and 4 kayaks with lifeguards to form a floating barricade around swimmers on the swim course. One of the motorboats will be from the Orlando Fire Department and each boat will have a lifeguard or EMT aboard.
