Abstract:
Enteric viruses were isolated from the fresh water recreational areas of Oak Creek in northern Arizona. Samples were collected and assayed directly for total and fecal coliforms, fecal streptococci, and coliphage. Sixty eight- to 1,155-liter samples were filtered through positively charged filters, eluted with beef extract, and assayed for human enteric viruses and rotaviruses. Enteric viruses were detected at sampling sites at levels exceeding those recommended by the State of Arizona for full-body contact recreational waters. In addition, viruses were isolated at sites which met recommended levels for fecal coliform bacteria.
