Abstract

Fecal indicator bacteria (FIB) are known to accumulate in foreshore beach sand and pore water (referred to as foreshore reservoir) where they act as a non-point source for contaminating adjacent surface waters. While guidelines exist for sampling surface waters at recreational beaches, there is no...

Abstract

Runoff from snowmelt can be a significant nonpoint source of fecal contamination into waters used for winter recreation, and in spring months leading up to the bathing season. However, little research has been conducted to understand bacterial persistence and potential accumulation in snow, or the...
