Abstract:

Wireless video cameras were installed in nine storm water channels to evaluate the potential for water contact recreation to occur in these locations. Cameras were programmed to collect one image every 15 minutes during daylight hours for twelve months. The resulting pictures were used as part of a Use Attainability Analysis to demonstrate that either no or only incidental, infrequent and partial body contact was occurring with no significant risk of immersion or ingestion. As a result, the associated stream segments are being recommended for reclassification which will result in the application of less stringent bacteria water quality criteria.
