Let's work together for clean water!

Water Quality Testing Campaign

We test bacteria levels at 20 sites in popular rivers and creeks to keep you and your family healthy and safe while enjoying the water. We added 5 new sites this year, including Hendricks Park on Filbin Creek and the Stono River at Sol Legare boat landing and need your support to keep this program alive and well!
