Presentation Abstract

Enterococci is an indicator bacteria that is used to measure the presence of fecal contamination in marine and fresh water. Water quality monitoring is important to safeguard public and ecosystem health. For this research forty-six samples were collected from Mouth of Swash, Briarcliffe Acres, in South Carolina from February 20, 2018 to February 17, 2021. The samples were analyzed using IDEXX EnterolertTM-Quanty-TrayTMMethod (SM 9230D-2007). The mean result was 384 cfu/100ml, which is within the water quality standard of 104-501 cfu/100mL for single samples proposed by the EPA.
