E. coli Monitoring Results
February, 2021 The E. coli levels in Christians Creek were very high recently. This is likely related to the recent significant snows and subsequent melting and runoff. There is no data to report this month for 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.
Good – means the E. coli level is below the VA State Standard of 235 – water is safe for recreational use
High – means the E. coli level is above the VA State Standard of 235 – water is unsafe for recreational use
