Follow Up: Sewage Spill Results Are in

I just got the results from yesterday’s water quality samples taken at the location of the sewage spill in Los Penasquitos. And the results are in.

The good news is that the data show a slight improvement in bacteria concentrations, however, the bad news is that these concentrations are still well above healthy standards. Dissolved oxygen has risen only slightly and remains below 1 mg/L. This morning I took samples in the lagoon so we will be able to track the downstream effects of the sewage spill. We’ll post those results on our blog on Monday.

Meanwhile, check out the data from yesterday’s creek sample as compared to our initial samples from Saturday and our historical average.
