Fecal Coliform Results
The first major rainstorm of the 2009-2010 water year arrived on October 14. In our 5th year comparing First Flush with Dry Weather levels, fecal coliform levels were again quite high in many of the creeks sampled. Click HERE for results from some of the 17 Arcata sites sampled by our network of volunteers participating in the Citizens Water Quality Monitoring Program. Sites in Eureka and McKinleyville were also tested during the 2009 First Flush event. For information on other First Flush results, contact jkalt [at] humboldtbaykeeper.org.
