Know before YOU Splash!

Is it safe to play? We monitor water quality, so you don’t have to wonder…Water Quality Legend

As of June 1, 2018, the water quality in Ashland Creek is SAFE!

Water quality in Ashland Creek varies, due to many factors in our watershed. The City of Ashland monitors E. coli levels weekly, May through October. We share these results by changing the status of the water samples, which is either GREEN or RED.

What does E. coli bacteria mean to you?

E. coli is a bacteria found naturally in the digestive tracts of humans and many other animals. Not all E. coli cause disease; however, high E. coli counts can can also be an indicator of other pathogens. Water that exceeds the State’s E. coli standards should not be ingested, and you are strongly urged to stay out of the creek. We share these results by changing the color of the sign. Signs are posted at the children's playground and at the Swim Reservoir in Lithia Park (both locations are along Ashland Creek).
