Latest Lowcountry water quality tests return good results

The latest water quality tests preformed in the Charleston area continue to return encouraging results, according to the Charleston Waterkeeper.

The organization says the results are similar to last weeks, with a notable exception at the mouth of Shem Creek. They say bacteria levels there have dropped to levels low enough for safe swimming.

Three locations did test positive for high levels of bacteria; two Shem Creek sites beyond the Coleman Boulevard bridge, and the upper James Island Creek by Folly Road.

The water quality of the boat landing at the Folly River also showed low levels of bacteria.

You can find more information on the results by going to the Charleston Waterkeepers website.
