Bacteria sampling results from Billy’s Creek in Fort Myers on 3-15-19. Serious contamination occurs, especially in the upper reaches. The result from station BC-9, near Ortiz Avenue is the highest we have seen since sampling began: 172 times the EPA Beach Action Value of 70 MPN. No warning signs are posted in the area. Thanks to Ed and Chris Shinouskis for managing the sampling and analysis at our FGCU lab.
