Rick Swinger got his E.coli testing kit in order, with the ice this time, and did his testing of the Rose Ave water drain water at the beach. It is a pond near the kiddies playground.

Yes.  The test showed 17.5 times what it should be.  

“Drinking this contaminated water would certainly be a way of contacting E.coli according to the laboratory technician,” said Rick Swinger.   Less than 1 is normal.  This is 17.5 times what it should be.  Wading in the pond with an open sore would be another way.”  Mayo Clinic says Seniors and children are most susceptible.

“Santa Monica has 12 signs warning people about the dangers of their water drains at the beach,” said Swinger.  ” We have none.  I have called the county health department several times and they don’t seem to care, but now I am going to send them the report.”
