MONITORING FREQUENCY

Chester River Yacht and Country Club is sampled bi-weekly from May 20th to September 10th

SOURCE INFORMATION

ShoreRivers and the Chester Riverkeeper sample locations every other Wednesday from the week before Memorial Day through Labor Day. Samples results are generally reported on Thursdays 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 at Washington College 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.
