Pond water test results (summer 2017)

As of August 11, our pond water is in good shape. The E.Coli is a bit higher than we have seen but is normal given the high use and is not of concern at this time.

Detailed results in table below. Max EPA recommended level for E.Coli is 235 (drinking water should be under 1), no recommendation for phosphate. Last year’s comparable time values in ().

Date E.Coli Phosphate
June 9, 2017 5 CFU/100 ml (4) 0.08 mg/L (0.07)
July 7, 2017 20 CFU/100 ml (4) 0.07 mg/L (0.05)
August 11, 2017 30 CFU/100 ml (6) 0.07 mg/L (0.08)
