Water recreation sites on the Tonto National Forest in Arizona have been monitored for fecal coliform bacteria for 12 years. In spite of high recreational use, fecal coliform populations usually have remained within state water quality standards. On three occasions, the forest implemented temporary closures of a swimming area. Fecal coliform populations have varied widely within short distances and short time periods. It has not been possible to predict fecal coliform levels. Because of the potential for bacteria problems, recreation managers may wish to avoid small coves and stream inlets when selecting sites for swimming areas.
