  • Description:
    "The contamination of coastal waters by animal wastes is associated with a variety of sources of pollution including farms, septic tanks, municipal sewage effluents, sewage sludges, and storm runoff. Enteric viruses must contend with a myriad of soluble and particulate, organic and inorganic fractions which serve either to destroy or protect the infectious nature of the virus. More than 113 different virus types are found in human sewage, but viruses from many other sources are also part of the flora entering this environment. Not surprisingly, the greatest research effort has been toward an understanding of the environmental biology of human enteric viruses. Research here focused on the quantitative and qualitative aspects of suspended solids and human enteric viruses in estuarine waters, a physical/chemic​al characterizatio​n of the suspended particulate matter, and the possible role of flocculation in the removal of suspended solids-​associated virus from the water column"--National Sea Grant publication website.
