Data Collection and Modeling of Enteric Pathogens, Fecal Indicators and Real-Time Environmental Data at Madison, WI

Objectives:  (1) Expansion of this monitoring program will include: a) use of   improved indicators to index changes in the microbial quality of the   beach water including sensitive gene probe technologies to   discriminate between human and animal sources of fecal pollution;   and b) development of a facile method for the detection of   pathogenic E. coli  157:H7 C. Application of sensitive tests for the   detection of the pathogens Giardia, Cryptosporidia, and Salmonella.   (2) Determination of the correlations between microbial indicator   data, occurrence of pathogens, and meteorological, physical and   water quality data collected by remote monitoring stations. (3)   Consideration of mathematical constructs for modeling pathogen   occurrence. (4) Development of innovative partnerships with   community groups and agencies to facilitate dissemination of water   quality data and beach closure decisions, including construction of   a water quality World Wide Web database with dynamic query capacity   for the public.     (waterborne pathogens); (beach water-quality); (beach closures);   (Giardia); (Cryptosporidia); (Salmonella); (E. coli  157:H7.);   (microorganisms); (bacteria); (fecal coliform); (E. coli);   (Wisconsin); (microbial source tracking); (MST); (bacterial source   tracking); (BST)
