In conjunction with the University of Saint Joseph, the SRWA and the AHRC have begun water quality testing in the towns of Somers, Enfield, and East Windsor. You can determin the
safety of the water for swimming or boating by visiting the Is It Clean?
Choose the relevant town from the drop down list and determine the site's rating by the color presented. Blue means that the area is safe for swimming, yellow means boating only, and red signifies that the
bacteria levels are too high to safely do either. One of the key bacteria being tested for is e. Coli, which can help determine the presence of other pathogens in the water.
