    Linking Fecal Bacteria in Rivers to Environmental Factors and Sources

    Join us for a webinar on Nov 30, 2015 at 11:30 AM EST.

    Register now!

    Note: This is a webinar broadcast of a live event being held in Lansing, Michigan. 

    Join us to hear about a recent study (Verhougstraete et al. 2015) that characterized fecal pollution across the lower peninsula of Michigan. The researchers used source-tracking markers to sample 64 river systems in Michigan for E. coli and the human fecal bacteria B. thetaiotaomicron. Advances in source-tracking allow water scientists to track down the origin of non-point pollution more accurately than ever before. 

    11:30-12:30 Presentation by study authors Dr. Marc Verhougstraete, Dr. Joan Rose, Dr. David Hyndman, and Dr. Sherry Martin 

    12:30-1:00 Q&A session

    After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.

    April 20, 2015
    1:30 - 3:30 p.m.

    This live webinar will discuss what a septic system is, how it works, the best management practices to protect the system and more.

    This live webinar will include the presentation by a Health Department sanitarian supervisor with 29 years of septic and well experience, and an engineer from the DEQ.  A live question-and-answer session via the chat box will be available.
