Table Legend

Cell Color Fecal Coliform Value Concern Level
symbol for low concern symbol for low concern Individual value < 200 CFU/100 ml Low Concern - safe for swimming
symbol for moderate concern Individual value >= 200 & < 1000 CFU/100 ml Moderate Concern – still safe for swimming
symbol for high concern Individual value >= 1000 CFU/100 ml
or geometric mean >= 200 CFU/100 ml
High Concern – flagged for resample. For more information see Beach Closure Protocol – Fecal coliform bacteria
NOTE: If the routine sample exceeds the standard, either a single sample that exceeds 1000 CFU/100ml or a geometric mean of the five most recent samples that exceeds 200 CFU/100ml, then re-sampling is triggered.

Cell Color E. coli Value Concern Level
symbol for high concern Individual value >= 410 CFU/100 ml
or geometric mean >= 126 CFU/100 ml
High Concern – flagged for resample. E. coli is not used as a Washington State standard but is used as an EPA standard.
