Asheville, North Carolina

The River Arts District (RAD) is a cool spot, connecting downtown and West Asheville. Housing lots of artists and several good restaurants and breweries, it s a fun place to put-in on the river. Boaters and tubers alike find this a nice part of the river to get out and explore.

The French Broad Riverkeeper, housed at the MountainTrue, monitors the French Broad River Watershed for E. coli, a bacteria found in the waste (feces) of most warm-blooded animals, including humans. High levels of E. coli can pose a health risk for people swimming in the water.

Participating volunteers take weekly water samples, and sites are listed as failing to meet water quality standards if they fall the samples are above EPA's recommended safe level for E. coli of 235 E. coli colonies per 100 milliliters of water. Volunteers take samples early each week, and results are posted on Thursday or Friday.

This sample data provides a general guide to the health of the waterway and should only be used for informational purposes. This data does not guarantee the sampled area is safe for swimming at all times.

Overall, E. coli levels in the French Broad River are low, and the river is typically safe for swimming. However, E. coli levels can change at any time and frequently increase after rain events. As a general rule, if the water is clear, then E. coli levels are likely to be low.
