Enhanced Monitoring Pathogen Data

DEP routinely schedules and collects samples for protozoan analyses on a weekly basis, and those data for DEL18 appear here. On occasion, DEP may collect protozoan samples at a higher frequency, such as during or after a heavy rainfall. Enhanced sampling is performed when a potential water quality event begins, and ends when the event is resolved. Enhanced sampling data for the previous 6 months appear below.
