Running across the state, the James River is a popular and historic spot for recreation. In the last six years, about 85 percent of water quality samples have shown the James is safe for recreation. The other 15 percent showed high levels of bacteria, especially after it rained. The James River Association has an online tool to help people enjoy the river safely, called the James River Watch , according to a news release from the association. Since , James River Association trained volunteers have ventured out to popular recreational spots along the mile-long river to collect water samples. The tests happen every weekend between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
