Home » Uncategorized » E. coli Monitoring Results through March, 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 the E. coli study on Upper Middle River from July, 2015, through March, 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.
Numbers in the list below in red exceed 235 CFU/100ml.
