Registration now open for February 2012 BST Conference The Texas Water Resources Institute, the Texas State Soil and Water Conservation Board, the University of Texas School of Public Health–El Paso Regional Campus and Texas AgriLife Research are hosting the 2012 Bacterial Source Tracking–State of the Science Conference Feb. 28–29, 2012 at the T Bar M Resort and Conference Center in New Braunfels.

Speakers at this one-and-a-half-day conference will discuss bacterial source tracking (BST) and its application regarding current practices, scientific advances and improvements in application. Nonpoint sources (NPS) of pollution greatly affect water quality, with bacteria being a serious concern. Identifying and assessing sources of fecal pollution are vital in effectively implementing a NPS pollution management program. BST helps identify the source of bacterial pollution.
