2017 Beach Watch Week 4: July 24
July 27th, 2017 | Posted by admin
Save The River Reports on Week 4 of Beach Watch Program
Save The River/Upper St. Lawrence Riverkeeper is monitoring popular summer swimming locations on the River from July 3rd through August 28th on a weekly basis. Due to this season’s high water not all beaches usually sampled each year can be sampled now. However, all beaches sampled on July 24, 2017 passed.
Save The River’s annual sampling program provides a glimpse of the water quality at popular swimming areas during the peak recreational swimming season. For the 2017 sampling season Save The River volunteers will collect water quality samples at five swimming areas along the River: Wilson’s Beach in Cape Vincent, Potter’s Beach on Grindstone Island, Round Island in Clayton, Lake of the Isles on Wellesley Island, and Scenic View Park in Alexandria Bay. Frink Park in Clayton is closed to swimming at this time.
|Location||Pass/Fail||Parts per 100mL|
|Lake of the Isles||PASS||5.2|
|Round Island||N/A||No Sample|
|Scenic View Beach||PASS||62.0|
|Wilson’s Beach 3 ft||PASS||62.4|
|Wilson’s Beach 6ft||PASS||36.8|
Results are expressed in numbers of bacteria colonies found in 100 milliliter (mL) sample of swimming water. The NY State Department of Health has set a swimming quality limit of 235 colonies of E. coli bacteria per 100 mL of water.
As in previous years, samples collected by Save The River will be tested for E. Coli bacteria. Results will be compared to levels set out in state and federal regulations. Save The River will make the results available to the public each week with a pass/fail system at the organization’s office, online on its webpage (www.savetheriver.org) and by following Save The River on Facebook and Twitter. Results will also be posted on www.swimguide.org and in the T.I. Sun.
To sign up for weekly Beach Watch updates or for more information about the program please contact the Save The River office at (315)-686-2010 or visit www.savetheriver.org.
