Instream Bacteria Influences from Bird and Bat Habitation of Bridges

Project Goals/Objectives: To develop and implement an experimental study design providing for the collection of environmental data to test the hypothesis that bridges containing significant numbers of roosting and nesting birds and bats increase ambient bacteria concentrations of streams under low flow conditions as compared to the situation where roosting and nesting is absent.
