Corsica River Yacht Club

Centreville, Maryland

ShoreRivers samples for bacteria at the Corsica River Yacht Club (CRYC), on the Corsica River just upriver from Ship Point. This area is popular with sailors and other boaters - the CRYC frequently hosts regattas, sailing programs, and water-oriented community events.

COVID-19

Keep your distance from other people.

Practicing social distancing is still essential. Only go to the beach if you are able to keep 6 feet or 2 meters away from others. Follow the instructions provided by your local health authorities. If your community has asked that you remain indoors and away from others, do so. Spending a day in any crowded place is the worst thing we can do for our most vulnerable right now and will counter our efforts to curb the virus’s spread.

Monitoring Frequency

Corsica River Yacht Club is sampled weekly from May 27th to September 3th.

Source Information

ShoreRivers and the Chester Riverkeeper sample locations weekly on Thursdays from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Samples results are generally reported on Fridays and Swim Guide is updated as soon as possible to reflect the latest results.

Samples are measured for Entroccoci bacteria, which serve as an indicator bacteria for pathogens in the water. Analysis is performed by ShoreRivers' technical staff using the IDEXX Enterolert procedure.

The Environmental Protection Agency has set a threshold of 104 colony forming units per 100 milliliters (cfu/100ml) as the single test limit for weekly testing. Samples recording less than 104 cfu/100ml are therefore considered acceptable levels for swimming and water contact. Samples recording 104 cfu/100ml or greater are considered unacceptable for swimming and water contact due to the increased risk of illness. It is advised that after a rainfall, all Chester River beaches are under a no swimming/no direct water contact advisory for 48 hours due to predicted elevated bacteria levels from rainwater runoff and increased health risks. ShoreRivers' mission is to protect and restore Eastern Shore waterways through science-based advocacy, restoration, and education.
