Feces-Linked Bacteria Found at Lake Erie Beaches
Date:8/31/2012

Hobbs said.

Lee added that "animals can contribute significantly to fecal contamination. If you bring your dog to the beach, make sure it doesn't contaminate the beach near the water." And, "parents with young children in diapers should be cautious that there's no leakage," she said.

In addition, local ordinances should ensure that nearby property owners maintain their septic tanks, Lee pointed out.

At the government level, Hobbs said, "The EPA must reconsider those proposed criteria and make sure they're using the latest science, and that they're covering the range of illnesses that we know can arise from swimming in contaminated water."
