Analysis, Identification and Strategies for TMDL Implementation (based on bacterial source tracking of Huron River watershed storm sewers)

All streams in the Huron River watershed are designated Warm Water   Habitat (the water will support plant and animal species accustomed   to warm water), including the lake-affected lower 1  miles of the   river. Of the 22  miles evaluated, 14  meet the quality level of   their use designation. 83% of the impaired streams are in areas that   drain less than 2  square miles. Several streams are being  re-evaluated for a possible change to Modified Warm Water Habitat   due to persistent habitat or channel modification.     After eliminating illicit connections as sources of high levels of   Escherichia coli in two storm sewers tributary to the Huron River in   southeast Michigan, the roles of urban wildlife, pets, humans, and   birds in this project were investigated using a sequence-based   bacterial source tracking technology. The sequence-based bacterial   source tracking method suggests that feces from pets and raccoons   are important contributors to urban storm sewers.    (microbial source tracking); (MST); (bacterial source tracking);   (BST)
