Fluidion Alert-One Used to Inform University Boat Race Organizers

Their monitoring over several days showed average E.Coli levels of 2,869 E. Coli colony forming units (CFU) per 100 ml of water in 16 tests around Hammersmith Bridge, which is just short of halfway along the 4.25-mile Boat Race course.
