Abstract: Natural streams collect runoff and discharges from many sources which alter the quality of stream water. To determine the hygienic quality of streams, water samples from streams are collected and assayed for two human enteric bacteria, fecal coliform (FC) and fecal streptococcus (FS). These bacteria are non-pathogenic to man and are normal inhabitants of the intestinal tract of man and warm blooded animals. The concentrations of these bacteria in natural waters are used as indicators of fecal pollution and as a probability factor that pathogenic microorganisms may be present in that polluted water.
