Beach Water Quality Data

Following is from the NH DES Beach inspection program website. (Thank you for whoever sent the link).
Note the dates for scheduled testing. The beaches are tested at least three times per summer. You can check back on the DES website way back to the 1990's for testing results.

"State Standards and Advisories
New Hampshire law (RSA 485-A:8) provides standards for the state’s water quality. The standard at freshwater swimming beaches is 88 counts of E. coli per 100 milliliters of water (counts/100 ml) in a single sample. Beach advisories are issued at freshwater beaches when either two samples taken at a beach exceed the standard or when one sample exceeds 158 counts/100 ml.
