What does the E. Coli test result mean? E. coli in water is measured as the number of bacteria found in 100 milliliters (mL) of water. In Vermont, when the test result at a public swimming area is 235 E. coli/100mL or less, it means that the water is considered suitable for swimming. A result greater than 235 E. coli/100 mL means that the water is not considered suitable for swimming.
A water test conducted at Elfin Lake public beach on 06/12/24 found 14 E.coli/100ml, well below the threshold.
