E. coli bacteria monitoring study of the Walnut Creek and Elk Creek watersheds (Pennsylvania)

This project, conducted by Mercyhurst biology faculty Dr. Steven   Mauro, chemistry faculty Dr. Clint Jones and a team of student   researchers, seeks to identify sources of the bacteria with the goal   of facilitating an action plan to resolve pollution issues in the   Lake Erie tributaries. In the past, Mauro's team has produced   compelling scientific evidence that links human waste in creeks to   beach water contamination.    (microbial source tracking); (MST); (bacterial source tracking);   (BST); (beach closures); (beach closing); (beach closure); (beach   closings); (E. coli); (Escherichia coli); (human health);   (bacteria); (Pennsylvania)
