Catching up on recent Beach Watch results: so far this summer, all Save The River sites that have submitted samples have passed! Read below for specific results for each week.

Week 3 Beach Watch results from samples taken on Monday, July 15, 2019 showed that the seven locations that submitted samples all passed: Potters Beach had an E. coli bacteria colony level of 2.0 per 100 milliliter (ml), Lake of the Isles and Round Island both had a level of 3.0 per100 ml, Wilson Bay at 6’ depth had a level of 3.1 per 100 ml, Frink Park had a level of 4.1 per 100 ml, Wilson Bay at 3’ depth had a level of 7.4 per 100 ml, and Scenic View Park had a level of 186.0 E. coli bacteria colonies per 100 ml. A new sample site was added in Week 3: The Cove at Thousand Island Park was tested and showed an E. coli bacteria colony level of 14.8 per 100 ml. All of these levels, including Scenic View Park, are below the New York State Health Department limit of 235 colonies of E. coli bacteria per a 100 ml sample of swimming water.

Week 4 Beach Watch results from samples taken on Monday, July 22, 2019 showed that the six locations that submitted samples all passed: Lake of the Isles and Frink Park both had an E. coli bacteria colony level of less than 1.0 per 100 ml sample of swimming water, Potters Beach had an E. coli bacteria colony level of 1.0 per 100 milliliters (ml), The Cove at Thousand Island Park showed an E. coli bacteria colony level of 6.2 per 100 ml, Wilson Bay at 6’ depth had an E.coli bacteria colony level of 9.6 per 100 ml, and Scenic View Park had a level of 14.6 E. coli bacteria colonies per 100 ml. Round Island did not have a sample submitted in Week 4 but did have a sample taken for Week 5 (July 29); results will be available on Save The River’s social media later this week.

The Week 5 Beach Watch results from samples taken on Monday, July 29, 2019 showed that the seven locations that submitted samples all passed: Frink Park, Round Island, and Lake of the Isles all had a level of 1.0 E. coli bacteria colony per 100 milliliters (ml) sample of swimming water, Scenic View Park had a level of 7.3 E. coli bacteria colonies per 100 ml, The Cove at Thousand Island Park showed an E. coli bacteria colony level of 8.5 per 100 ml, Wilson Bay at 3’ depth had a level of 9.8 E. coli bacteria colonies per 100 ml, Wilson Bay at 6’ depth had an E.coli bacteria colony level of 10.9 per 100 ml, and Potters Beach had an E. coli bacteria colony level of 20.1 per 100 ml sample of swimming water. All of these levels are well below the New York State Health Department limit of 235 colonies of E. coli bacteria per 100 ml sample of swimming water.
