"Ecoligate" Leads to Water Quality Action

Every year beaches and lakes all over the country as closed down when levels of fecal coliform bacteria levels reach or exceed certain levels. Only when high E. coli levels close truly popular recreational waters is there much attention paid.

Since last spring, however, Missourians have learned enough to fill a textbook about E. coli contamination of recreational waters and maybe a short course on political corruption to boot.

It all started when the Missouri Department of Natural Resources tested waters in the popular vacation Lake of the Ozarks, finding in it high levels of E. coli.
