Fecal Bacteria Rises with Sea Level on Texas Beaches

As climate change lifts the sea level in the Gulf of Mexico, it’s lifting levels of enterococci bacteria on Texas’s beaches, too. New research out of the Gulf shows that high levels of enterococci bacteria, which come from humans and other animals and can cause disease, are correlated with proximity to large human populations and sea level rise and are increasing over time. The research highlights an area of growing concern for public health and safety on popular recreational beaches. While sea level is projected to continue rising, it’s not a guarantee that bacteria levels will as well.

National Park Dairies Curb Pollution with Best Practices

They also generate the frequent fogs that water the grasslands that beef and dairy cows have grazed for more than 150 years. While it’s unusual for 28,000 acres of a national park to be dedicated to agriculture as it is at Point Reyes, the relationship that’s been in place since the park’s designation by John F. Kennedy in 1962. Now, research by National Park Service scientists shows improving water quality as best management practices for manure control were installed on the dairies and ranches within the park.

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.
