SOURCE INFORMATION

Chattahoochee River Conservancy staff and volunteers monitor water quality at various sites throughout the region. Sampling season starts a week prior to Memorial Day and ends the week following Labor Day. Water is sampled for Escherichia coli (E. coli) at all sites.

Chattahoochee River Conservancy utilizes the standardized state criteria of 235 E. coli/100 ml for collecting and analyzing water samples. Test results are expressed as Most Probable Number (MPN) of E. coli Colony Forming Units (CFU) per 100 mL.

Water samples are collected weekly, generally on Wednesdays and Thursdays, with data available by Friday afternoon. Results will be communicated through the Swim Guide app and will be posted on Chattahoochee River Conservancy's social media sites, including Facebook. They are also available by calling Chattahoochee River Conservancy at (706) 649-2326. To report an issue, email: henry@chattahoocheeriverconservancy.org

Advisories are issued when the latest sample results indicate the site is unsafe for swimming. A site is determined to be unsafe for swimming if E. coli values exceed the state criteria of 235MPN/100mL.. These sites will be represented by a “red” status.

A “green” status will be issued when the latest sample result has less than or equal to 235 MPN/100 mL, and therefore meets state criteria.

A "grey" status will be issued when there are no current results or no data available for that area.
