Christians Creek December Results

December’s results look very good except at the most upstream sites – Old Staunton Rd. and Peyton Hill Road.  Christians Creek is very narrow there because it’s just getting started.  There are also a lot of livestock with access to the stream there.  Downstream of Greenville, the results are excellent!

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.
Numbers in red below exceed 235 CFU/100ml.
