Mobile Baykeeper's Testing from Point Clear Shows Bacteria Levels Below EPA Threshold

Mobile Baykeeper's Testing from Point Clear Shows Bacteria Levels Below EPA Threshold

Following an alarming video posted to Facebook late Saturday night, Mobile Baykeeper has done what they do best: investigate potential pollution. Executive Director Casi Callaway received the video on Sunday and called Fairhope Utilities to report a potential sewage spill. On Monday, Program Director Cade Kistler, Program Coordinator Meredith Diskin, and AmeriCorps Patrol member Sarah Asher went out to investigate. Today they were able to read the water samples they took, which all showed bacteria levels below the EPA threshold. The identification of the substance remains unclear.

The final bacteria sample will be taken on Thursday May 30th and analyzed at Mobile Baykeeper’s lab in Mobile. Results will be available on Friday May 31st (the day before the race) midday. Mobile Baykeeper will make the final call on the swim course based on the results of this sample.
