From the Vermont Dept. of Health website: 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/100mL means that the water is not considered suitable for swimming
