August E. Coli Monitoring Results

Home » Uncategorized » August E. Coli Monitoring Results

August results show elevated E. coli levels at nine sites on Christians Creek and three sites on Middle River.

E. coli results are based on the number of E. coli Colony Forming Units or CFU per 100 milliliters of water (approximately 3.4 ounces) – CFU/100ml

If the number of CFU/100ml is over 235, the water is not safe for recreational use.
