Interesting comment. Eight years ago pre-dated the existing sewer system. If the beach waters tested positive for coliform or Ecoli back then, the question at the time likely was - where was it coming from?
Last week the beach water tested negative for coliform and Ecoli. This, of course, does not rule out the existence of other pathogens in the water, although it is likely that coliform and Ecoli would present themselves along with other contaminents.
It is important to keep in mind that not all strains of Ecoli present a health risk, although some strains do. Rather, the presence of coliform and ecoli are indicators that disease bearing pathogens could also be present.
The answers to all these questions are hopefully on their way.
