Update: Coosa Riverkeeper Finds High E-coli Levels

Before we cheer to the weekend, the Coosa Riverkeeper wants to notify every one of the areas tested with E-coli. Areas with high levels of E-coli were at Choccolocco at the Priebes Mill Bridge, and Coldwater Creek. Areas that tested moderately high for E-coli this week were Big Canoe Creek, Attalla City Park, Big Wills Creek and Hatchet Creek.

With heavy rain expected to come through these areas over the weekend, these results could change. The Riverkeeper suggest anyone planning to swim in these areas to swim with caution. To receive weekly updated results simply text the word SWIMGUIDE to 844-83.
