SCCWRP in February will present the preliminary findings of a microbial source tracking study intended to gauge the relative degradation rates of pathogens, fecal indicator bacteria and source-associated markers in California waters.
The study’s goal is to develop a model to help beach managers statewide with interpreting data from microbial source tracking studies. SCCWRP and its partners conducted a series of field and mesocosm experiments in a variety of environmental settings.
Preliminary findings will be presented to the Beach Water Quality Workgroup on February 17 at SCCWRP.
