Government Officials Ignore Health Risks Associated with E. coli in Boulder Creek

Since 2003 harmful bacteria Escherichia coli (E. coli) levels have created a health risk to recreational users in Boulder Creek. Boulder Creek has been designated as an impaired stream and is not meeting an EPA health-based water quality standard. Concentrations of E. coli increase from the mouth of Boulder Canyon to the University of Colorado-Boulder and beyond based upon data collected by the City of Boulder according to information published by the CU Independent and the Boulder Camera . EM spoke to environmental engineer Art Hirsch of the Boulder Waterkeeper , who is advocating for greater accountability from all entities that own property abutting the stream. “E.

Thousands of Mount Everest hikers add to area’s groundwater contamination

Nepal’s Mount Everest is a wonder to behold. Sitting at more than 29,000 feet, many attempt to summit it each year. And though some climbers don’t make it to the top, all of them have an effect on the mountain’s ecosystem. What’s more, say scientists at Ball State University, the quantities of trash and human waste they leave behind are having disgusting effects on water quality downstream. At the bottom of Mount Everest, there are Sherpa communities too poor to afford water treatment plants and their members often drink untreated water straight off the mountain. “You can find almost every kind of waste. Everything from water bottles, batteries, cans, toilet paper,” said Kirsten Nicholson, professor of geological sciences at Ball State.

Filipino researchers conduct Cagayan de Oro River's first-ever biotic water quality assessment

While probes and sensors often do a fine job of measuring water quality parameters, tiny organisms that naturally populate waterways can provide useful insight into the state of their habitat -- in some cases, with greater efficiency than expensive instruments. Researchers from the Xavier University Freshwater Biology Team in the Philippines have penned a study touting the benefits of employing riverine biota as indicators of riverine system health. Biological monitoring, they say, can be less expensive and more accurate than instrument-based methods.
