Water testing

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/100 mL 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. Elfin Lake water was tested June 14, 2023 and the result was 25 E. coli/100 mL  – well below the 235 threshold.

Plenty of great walking trails around the lake.
