A comprehensive review of microbiology in a western arid urban watershed and insight on the reasonableness of proposed stream limits for E. coli
The Urban South Platte River (USP) runs through the center of metropolitan Denver, Colorado. Since 1998, the watershed has been extensively monitored for E. coli. Comprehensive data from the watershed study will be presented to demonstrate that regulatory limits of 126 cfu/100 ml of sample will be difficult, if not impossible, to attain in a TMDL plan. Previously unpublished E. coli data from a USGS urbanization impact study in the same geographic area demonstrates similar findings and show that there is also no relationship between the degree of urbanization and E. coli concentrations.
