Stream sediments have been recognised as an in-channel store of faecal contamination that can be mobilised during floods or other sediment-disturbing events. We studied this store of faecal contamination by creating artificial floods during dry weather when, in the absence of overland flow from the catchment, the only source of faecal bacteria was stores within the channel. Artificial floods, created by releasing water from a supply reservoir, increased the E. coli concentration in the water… CONTINUE READING
