The information contained on this website is for informational purposes only. All sites monitored are natural waterbodies and contaminants are present from a wide variety of sources! Local conditions fluctuate, sometimes dramatically, and especially after rainfall events. The results displayed above are only representative of the exact time, date and location at which the sample was taken and do not represent the water quality between sampling events or at other locations nearby. Users of these data should not assume that a “low” enterococci level means that it is necessarily safe or risk-free to make contact with the water. Enterococci is not the only contaminant of concern for recreational users and is used merely as an indicator of potential fecal contamination. Tampa Bay Waterkeeper, their directors, and agents can provide no guaranty of water safety and, as such, the user assumes all risks associated with the use of these data and swimming.
