    Those maladies could take the form of stomach cramps, a rash or an ear or eye infection. Data were collected to build on an earlier study to develop and test multiple-linear-regression models to predict E. Experts generally suggest avoiding contact with the water for 24 to 48 hours — longer for river and bay beaches — after a heavy rain. Young children, the elderly, and those with a weakened immune system are particularly vulnerable to recreational water illnesses. The change in standards will become effective in Florida for all testing conducted and results received from January 1, forward.

    FS How do we determine when the beaches are safe for swimming? Mize, and R. Shower with soap after swimming; showering helps remove potential disease-causing organisms. The third objective was to evaluate 24 h forecasts of microbial contamination at beaches. Kephart, John Rhoades, and Lester Stumpe.

    High levels of bacteria can indicate an increased risk of gastrointestinal illness GI illness in swimmers. Do not dispose of trash, pet waste, or dirty diapers on the beach. What is the risk of illness associated with exposure to contaminated beach water? In water where enterococcus is prevalent, other dangerous pathogens tend to lurk. Kephart, Christina A.
