This week’s water quality report from our riverkeeper Matt Pluta with a caveat!￼🏊🏽♀️ 🏊♂️ BACTERIA MONITORING UPDATE: note that these samples were collected before Friday morning’s rain and it’s known that bacteria levels in the water increase as a result of runoff. Visit theswimguide.org for more information about #swimmableshorerivers
Please keep in mind: ⚠️ Bacteria levels can change, particularly as a result of significant rain events, and so it’s advised by the State of MD that swimmers stay out of the water for up to 24-48 hours after a significant rain event, as defined as greater than 1" of rain within a 24 hour period.
⚠️ Swimmers should never swim in the river with open wounds or cuts.
⚠️ Swimmers should always wash off after swimming in the river.
⚠️ There are inherent risks associated with open water swimming beyond high bacteria levels. Swimmers and beach-goers should be advised to obey signs and laws wherever they plan to recreate in the water.
