Presentation Abstract

Water is important because we use it for our everyday use, whether it's for drinking, bathing, or for our enjoyment. Pollution causes the environment to have a harmful effect, which is usually caused by microorganisms (bacteria) Some of those Bacteria include E. coli and Total Coliform. They're mainly found in the intestines of humans, in animals, in water, and also found in the soil. Most of these bacteria are harmless but it can provide you with symptoms of diarrhea, vomiting, and stomach cramps. When water comes in contact with feces, humans, or any living organism, the water is contaminated. There was a total of 256 samples of E. coli and Total Coliform that was measured in CFU/100 mL (Colony Forming Unit). Samples came from the 544 West location at Coastal Carolina University. From 2011-2020 the number of E. coli and Total Coliform increased compared to the standards and averages.
