The Yakima Basin National Water-Quality Assessment Program collected fecal-coliform bacteria samples during three synoptic samplings to identify and quantify the cause, source, transport, and effects of fecal-indicator bacteria in Yakima River Basin streams. The August synoptic sampling targeted the Yakima River main-stem and tributary sites, while the July and October.

a State-of-the-Knowledge Characterization in Washington and Oregon. The effects of manure spills on surface water or groundwater quality have historically been assessed by changes in water color, pH, dissolved oxygen content, nutrient enrichment, concentrations of fecal indicator bacteria (FIB), and in surface water, by outcomes such as cyanobacterial blooms and fish kills (7, 10, 11).

THE (D) LIST (REQUIRED BY SECTION (D) OF THE FEDERAL CLEAN WATER ACT) is a list of water bodies that are not meeting water quality standards.

Much survey work had been done, but no efforts had concentrated on using specific bacterial-source-tracking methodologies to trace and determine the source of fecal indicator bacteria in the swimming area.

Wyth Lake is an artificial basin with no surface water connections to other lakes or streams. Human enteric viruses (HEntVs) are a major cause of water-related diseases.

The prevalence of hepatitis A virus (HAV), rotaviruses (RoV) and enteroviruses (EnV) in Buffalo River waters was assessed quantitatively over a period of 12 months (August to July ). Seventy-two samples were collected from six sites, including three dams, and concentrated using the Cited by: Full text of "Selected water resources abstracts" See other formats.

To address these concerns, the Yakima Regional Clean Air Agency (YRCAA) proposed a draft policy in October to control and mitigate emissions through implementation of site-specific best.

The Skokomish River drains a basin of about square miles before discharging into the Annas Bay in southern Hood Canal near Potlatch, Washington State. Bacterial contamination was found in the lower Skokomish River and its marine receiving water that threatened beneficial uses such as freshwater and marine recreation, domestic water supply.
