To be clear on this, this was a scientific test in that it used proper equipment and testing procedures to test for levels of coliform and ecoli in various parts of the non-tap water in the community. There was no attempt to interpret the results - this is the work of people more qualified.
The tests indicate no recordable levels of coniform or ecoli in the waters on the beach ...... in the two areas tested. Dilution of the water from the lagoon or sewer overflow as it enters the ocean is a given. The important fact is that the testing of the ocean waters indicate completely safe waters for swimminig.
The sewage overflow on the streets is definately sewage. Whether or not it presents a health risk is not within the scope of this testing.
Many thanks to Valerie for initiating and paying for these tests.
