Determining the Presence of Fecal Coliform Bacteria in Private Water Well Samples of Texas
Dr. Monty C. Dozier, Dr. Dennis Hoffman
Individual water well samples were collected and screened from private water wells. These samples were screened on-site for the presence of fecal coliform bacteria. Once all samples were screened, results were compiled and percent fecal coliform bacteria contamination determined. To date, a total of 3,319 water well samples have been screened for the presence of fecal coliform bacteria. The presence of fecal coliform bacteria has been found in 250 of the samples.
