UGRA recognizes summer study volunteers

E. coli bacteria is an indicator of water contamination and is used to assess the risk of contracting a waterborne illness while swimming. Therefore, each summer, UGRA tests E. coli bacteria levels at twenty-one popular swimming holes throughout Kerr County. UGRA began the Volunteer Summer Study in 2004 to expand the number of sites that are monitored routinely and to supplement water quality data collected by UGRA staff.
