Water samples are collected every Thursday. Results are posted as soon as lab results are available on Friday (typically around noon CT). Results here on Swim Guide indicate E. coli concentrations, further data reporting on other water quality characteristics are published at coosariver.org/swimguide

A beach is marked Red when the results are equal to or above 126 E.coli / 100 ML water.

A beach is marked Grey when there are no current results or there is no available information.
