Tucker Park at Maidens Crossing

Goochland, Virginia

Tucker Park is an open, grassy area, with a picnic table and plenty of space to lay out a blanket. Large, developed trees line the river, and there is a small trail loop for people to enjoy the nature. From this area, people can load their boats into the water, enjoy the peaceful surroundings, and perhaps hear the nearby train roll by. A boat ramp is located across the river - a perfect access point. Swimming at the boat ramp area is not permitted.

MONITORING FREQUENCY

Tucker Park at Maidens Crossing is sampled weekly from May 26th to September 2nd

SOURCE INFORMATION

James Riverkeepers manage a water quality monitoring program covering 25 testing locations throughout the James watershed. Water samples are collected and processed for E. coli, turbidity, air/water temperature, conductivity and salinity (at brackish water sites).

James Riverkeepers collect samples every Thursday from May (Memorial Day) to September (Labor Day).

Bacterial Contamination

A beach is posted if it exceeds the following water quality standards put forward by the state:

A value =/> 235 cfu/100 mL

High bacteria levels, unsafe temperatures, or elevated river height trigger notification on the website that conditions are unsafe (www.jamesriverwatch.org).

Once bacteria results are available (approximately 24-hours after sample collection), results are immediately posted on the James River Watch website (www.jamesriverwatch.org), which informs the public of river conditions. They are also communicated through the Swim Guide app and website. Health advisories are rescinded when the above standards are met.

Monitoring Status

A beach is marked Green when a single sample result is under 235 CFU/100 mL and other conditions are relatively non-threatening.

A beach is marked Red when one consecutive single sample result is equal to or above 235 CFU/100 mL.

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