CRBI conducted bacterial water monitoring at four sites that included Grizzard Park, Euharlee Road, Neel’s Landing off of U.S. 411 and Heritage Park on June 13. The results of those monitoring efforts showed that 54.6 cfu/100mL of E.coli were present at Grizzard Park, 23.1 cfu/100mL were present at Euharlee Road, 26.2 cfu/100mL were present at Neel’s Landing, and that 91.2 cfu/100mL of E.coli were present at Heritage Park. This means that the amount of E.coli found at each site is considered safe for recreational use by the state of Georgia.

If you are interested in learning more, or if you would like to nominate a site for future testing, please contact Ashley Ray, outreach coordinator, at 706-232-2724 or aray@coosa.org.
