Title
Grazing intensity is a poor indicator of waterborne Escherichia coli O157 activity
Description
Contamination of watercourses with fecal matter represents a significant risk to public health due to the associated risk from human pathogens. Our results indicate that the greatest risk for pathogens entering freshwater is probably associated with high intensity livestock areas, although their subsequent survival is greatest in waters from low intensity livestock areas.
