An employee of the Anacostia Watershed Society (AWS) will sample the Anacostia River and tributaries (including those draining BARC) for fecal coliform bacteria and E. coli. AWS is responsible for all supplies and reagents; EMFSL provides lab space weekly to conduct the analyses. This collaborative study was initiated in 2004, so there are currently nine years of data. This information is useful as it provides a comparison with rural, predominantly agricultural watersheds.
