Participants learn about these indicator organisms’ importance and relevance for monitoring recreational waters, and about sources of bacterial pollution in surface waters. Demonstrations and/or hands-on training in use of the methods and opportunity for data results comparison were provided for IDEXX, Coliscan Easygel, 3M™ Petrifilm™, and LaMotte BioPaddles. These resources were provided improve understanding and capacity to carry out bacteria monitoring in surface waters as well as to present bacteria data effectively.
