Lower Haw State Natural Area - Bynum is sampled Weekly from May 10th to September 10th
Haw River Assembly staff and interns monitor water quality at sites in this region. Sampling season starts May 10th and ends September 10th. Water at all sites is sampled for E. coli at all sites.

Haw River Assembly utilizes the standardized federal criteria of 126 E.coli/100 ml for collecting and analyzing water samples. Test results are expressed as Most Probable Number (MPN) of E.coli cfu (colony forming units) per 100 ml. Water samples are collected weekly. Results are posted one day after collection. Results will be communicated through the swim guide app and results tables will be put on Haw River Assembly’s website and social media site. They are also available by email or by calling Haw River Assembly at 919-542-5790 or firstname.lastname@example.org. A beach is marked Green when single sample results are under 126 E.coli / 100 ML water. 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.
