FREDERICK, Md. – Through the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, several colleges tested fresh water streams and lakes in Maryland that show high levels of harmful bacteria, specifically in Frederick, the harmful bacteria enterococcus was found.

Especially after rainstorms, enterococcus was found in six different freshwater lakes and streams in Frederick, according to water samples taken to date through the summer at Hood College.

Hood College's Coastal Studies Coordinator, Claire Hudson, said enterococcus is an indication of fecal contamination and is mostly measured for human waste.

For instance, Glade Run, a local freshwater lake tested more than 200 times the safety standards set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency or EPA.
