Water Quality Update

“What gets measured, gets managed” is a great way of understanding the importance of our weekly water quality monitoring program. 15 volunteers work together each week to provide this invaluable data, and as shown, unfortunately, there are some elevated bacteria levels in our local waters. We are going to start a new effort with some guidance from the EPA to perform “source tracking” to determine if the bacteria is coming from humans or animals. Neither is good, but if it human waste, then it means we have to escalate the problem for timely resolution.
