added to website October 17, 2010
Please find two graphs that illustrate the bacteria issues at Winn Brook and at Alewife Brook.
Winn Brook is sampled at the outlet of Winn Brook where it empties into Little Pond.
Alewife Brook is sampled where Broadway crosses Alewife Brook at the Somerville/ Arlington Border.
I would direct you to our interactive map where all of this data is available and shows where it comes from: http://maps.mapc.org/myrwa/
The standard for bacteria is 235 bacteria/100 ml for swimming and 1260 for boating.Tests performed by Mystic River Watershed Association
