 The City of Quincy Health Department considers individual bathing beach water samples with enterococcus counts less than 104 acceptable for bathing/swimming.  Counts greater than 104 indicate the waters are unacceptable for swimming/bathing and beaches will be posted as such.  5-sample geomean values of greater than 35 are also deemed unacceptable.  N/A means not available.
