We have our weekly water quality results ready and are happy to announce that most of our local spots are looking much better this week with the exception of medium bacteria levels at Depressions and remaining high levels at Peskies. These spikes in bacteria levels could be caused by an array of factors, but is most likely due to localized runoff from Isla Vista–just more reason to keep IV clean! Also, even though the rest of the sites are showing low levels or no bacteria at all, the state still recommends you wait 72 hours until after the last rain event to go into the ocean. Stay safe out there Isla Vistans and good luck on finals!
