Title: Technical report series: North Alabama water quality assessment: Volume 4, Bacteriological quality

Abstract

This report evaluates bacteriological water quality in the Shoals area of North Alabama by collection of samples at water contact recreation areas on Pickwick and Wilson Reservoirs. Samples collected in the summer of 1985 in the Muscle Shoals region at 15 public use and public access areas on Pickwick and Wilson Reservoirs indicate good quality. All 15 of the recreation areas sampled had geometric mean concentrations well below the criterion for water contact recreation (200 fecal coliform bacteria per 100 m1 of sample). Further, FC/FS were quite low and did not indicate any sources of human waste to these areas. The fecal streptococcus data were the first to be collected are recreation areas on Pickwick and Wilson Reservoirs.
