Non-sewage Indicator Species in Stormwater
Abstract:Indicator organisms, surrogates of sewage-borne pathogens, are often used in both the health-risk assessment and the regulatory treatment of stormwater. Such use would better represent risk and proper treatment of such waters if the non-sewage contributors of indicator species were better quantified.
Results of a scoping study of factors contributing to environmental survival of commonly used indicator organisms will be presented.
