Water Quality Sampling Results

Warehouse Creek is sampled for fecal coliform bacteria weekly during the summer months just off of the Ingall's Beach property.  These results will be pasted below when they are received from Arundel Rivers.  If the data below appear out of date, more recent data may be available on the Arundel Rivers facebook page or at

The acceptable concentration of Enterococci bacteria for swimming and other direct water contact is less than 104 (cfu) colony forming units/100ml. 

The samples are collected by Arundel Rivers volunteers and analyzed by Dr. Tammy Domanski's Lab at the Anne Arundel Community College.

Please keep in mind that samples are collected on Wednesday.  Precipitation events that occur in the days following wash pollutants from the surrounding watershed into the waterways and may increase bacteria levels of the water.

Anne Arundel County has a 48 hour no swimming/recreational use guidance of water ways after a rain event.  Feces from geese and dogs, as well as leaky septic tanks are the top contributors to high bacteria results.  Please pick up after your pets!

South River Park has two park and garden areas.

Ingalls Beach is located on Riverside Road.  The property no longer has an active beach, but offers a serene view of Warehouse Creek as well as the park property.  A kayak rack is located on the property and plans are underway to improve water access by canoeists, paddle boarders, and kayakers.

The community gardens at the Club House are also maintained by volunteers. In addition to landscaping the park grounds, the Beautification Committee is developing a South River Park Memory Garden as a place to reflect on happy memories in South River Park as well as community members who are no longer with us. Plantings in this area include specimens from gardens of those gone as well as other plantings in memory of past residents. If you have questions about the community gardens or parks, please contact Joanie Sames, the chair of our Beautification Committee.
