Identification of Proximate Sources of Fecal Contamination to Maumee Bay by Determining Concentrations and Survival Characteristics of Escherichia Coli in Sediments

The overall objective of the project is to identify the main sources   of fecal contamination to Maumee Bay so that future   remediation/restoration measures can be taken and/or predictions of   recreational water quality can be made.  Issues/topics to be   investigated include: 1)the spatial and temporal distributions of   Escherichia coli in surficial sediments; 2)the resuspension of   significant densities of E. coli in Maumee Bay by storms; 3)the   effect of temperature changes from power plant processes on   densities of E. coli in waters entering the plant and being   discharged from the plant; 4)the relationship between environmental   and water quality variables, such as wind direction, wave height,   turbidity, and water temperature on E. coli densities in nearshore   sediment and water.    (MST); (microbial source tracking); (BST); (bacterial source   tracking); (E. coli); (Escherichia coli)
