Detection and occurrence of indicator organisms and pathogens.

The section on occurrence and transport is organized into 8 subsections: conventional vs. alternative indicators of fecal contamination, attachment and transport of fecal indicator bacteria (FIB) in the environment, occurrence of FIB and pathogens in groundwater, sources of FIB on a watershed scale, impact of irrigation on the survival and growth of FIB and pathogens, recreational beach quality, alternative indicators of fecal contamination, and environmental presence and persistence of pathogens. Following the outbreak, groundwater wells were tested for FIB, enteric viruses and bacteria, and protozoa.\n Sequencing of the beta-glucuronidase gene of E. coli isolates was used to predict sources of fecal pollution in Huron River in southern Michigan
