Surfrider, station 613


Fecal indicator bacteria levels are measured in water samples collected from ocean and bay beaches, streams, lakes and other coastal waterways. Water samples are processed using the IDEXX Quanti-Tray/2000 Method to enumerate enterococcus bacteria, a bacteria indicator used by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to determine human health risk at beaches and in other recreational waters. Surfrider lab and sampling site locations can be viewed at http://www.surfrider.org/blue-water-task-force
