Bacteria Testing

During the summer, we monitor bacteria levels at various community waterfront and restoration areas. We aim to provide timely public health information to participating communities and help identify times when it may be inadvisable to swim. Knowledge is key in our fight for healthier, clean waters. The season runs from Memorial Day to Labor Day. The full season cost is $475.  Contact Katie to sign up. To pay online, please click here. Please write “Bacteria Testing” in the comments on the online donation form to sign up.

You can also check out this data on our interactive data map or see the health of the water locally and around the nation at The Swim Guide.
