FOSR’s 2024 Summer E. coli Test Program Results for Tuesday, June 11, 2024

Below is the link to the E. coli results for the water samples collected yesterday, 06.11.2024, as part of Friends of the Shenandoah River’s Summer E. coli Testing Program. To confirm the previous 3 consecutive elevated E. coli readings at site FPHCTL, Hawksbill Creek Town of Luray off Virginia Ave., we performed a compliance QC split sample and collected a sample identified as FPHCUB upstream of site FPHCTL. The location of the upstream site, FPHCUB, was selected to potentially eliminate the semi-exposed sewer line the runs through Hawksbill Creek at site FPHCTL as seen in photo. With the elevated readings found upstream, it appears that this sewer line is not the culprit. We will continue to investigate if funding/donations continue to be available.
