Microbial Source Tracking of E. coli in Lake Erie

Theodore Lee, from SUNY Fredonia, in collaboration with the   Chautauqua Co. Health Department, will identify the sources of E.   coli in two Lake Erie beaches in Dunkirk, New York. The bacteria   will be isolated from beach water, streams that empty into the Lake   near the beaches, and fecal samples from different organisms. The   study results will indicate what organisms are most responsible for   the E. coli present in beach waters. This information can then be   used by the County Health Department to develop a plan for reduction   of the bacteria.     (microbial source tracking); (MST); (bacterial source tracking);   (BST)
