Concurrent measurement of the sewage tracer coprostanol and fecal indicator bacteria were made for water and sediments collected in January 1992 from coastal waters off Sydney, Australia. The coprostanol results were compared with data from an earlier survey conducted in 1989 before the commisioning of Sydney's deepwater ocean outfalls in 1990 and 1991. Good correlations were observed for both water and sediment samples between coprostanol and the two fecal indicator organisms, fecal coliforms… CONTINUE READING
