Home » Uncategorized » E. coli Monitoring Results through June, 2018

FOMR graciously acknowledges that the 2018 E. coli  project is possible through the generosity of a grant from the Shenandoah Valley Pure Water Forum

Click here to see the results (in spreadsheet  format) of this E. coli study  from July, 2015, through June, 2018.

E. coli results are based on the number of E. coli Colony Forming Units or CFU per 100 milliliters of water sample – CFU/100ml.  The current Virginia standard for recreational use is 235 CFU/100ml.
