Hood River at the Pedestrian Bridge

Hood River, Oregon
Mis à jour par Columbia Riverkeeper

The mouth of the Hood River is a nice place to dip your feet in the cool water and watch the fishermen along the banks hoping for a bite. If you want to swim in the Hood you might be more comfortable to head just a bit downstream from the pedestrian bridge to the Hood River delta (locally called "the Spit") where the shore of the Hood is sandy. Dogs are welcome and seem to love swimming here too. Columbia Riverkeeper volunteers have monitored the water quality at this site since 2006 and test for E.coli contamination on a monthly basis.

The Oregon state water quality standard provides that a single sample shall not exceed 406 E.coli colonies/100 mL of water and the geometric mean of 5 samples within 30 days shall not exceed 126 colonies/100 mL. The EPA recommended standard is more protective and provides that a single sample shall not exceed 235 colonies/100mL and the geometric mean of 5 samples within 30 days shall not exceed 126 colonies/100mL.

The Swim Guide will utilize the EPA standard for Oregon beaches.

There is currently very limited water quality monitoring of Oregon's inland swim beaches. The federal Beach Act does not cover freshwater or riverine beaches, and the state of Oregon does not monitor swim beaches or recreation sites on the Columbia. Columbia Riverkeeper monitors recreation sites in the Columbia River Gorge through their Volunteer Water Quality Monitoring Program. Most sites are sampled monthly and high priority sites are sampled weekly from June-September.

The Swim Guide's safety ratings are based solely on E.coli levels. While E.coli concentration is a useful indicator of fecal contamination, there are many other potential sources of pollution that are not reflected in the Swim Guide. These include other bacteria, heavy metals, pharmaceuticals, and pesticides that may harm aquatic life. On the Columbia and other salmon rivers, high temperatures threaten fish that need cold water.
