FOSR 2019 Summer E. coli Results through 07.05.2019
These are the E. coli concentration results for the water samples that I collected yesterday, July 5. In a freshwater system, these data represent a snapshot of the water quality on the date, time, and under the conditions that the water sample was collected.
The E. coli concentration results for the water samples collected on July 05, 2019 indicated that 9 out of the 14 water samples collected surpassed the Virginia Water Quality Standard threshold level of 235 colony forming units of E. coli per 100 ml of sample for freshwater beaches.
