In the interest of our member’s safety, the Redhouse Yacht Club committee (RYC) has undertaken to carry out its own independent testing of the water at Redhouse village, where we sail. We engaged the services of Talbot laboratories to undertake the testing.
Please find attached the latest water test results taken at Redhouse village, the results can be summarised as follows (please note the published allowable safe recreational level for E coli is 130/100ml) :
13 Feb 2015 – E coli 4/100ml – Analytical 2490y15
20 Feb 2015 – E coli 37/100ml – Analytical 2865y15
Based on these results the RYC committee is more than comfortable for sailing take place.
We will also continue to test the water to ensure the safety of our members and visiting sailors.
More samples are planned for today ahead of the inter-schools and the results thereof will be made available.
