NYS DEC News Release: DEC Awards $50,000 to SUNY Poly for Mohawk River Basin Program
Research Foundation for SUNY Polytechnic Institute: Determination of Baseline and Augmented Conditions of Microbial Indicators in the Mohawk River: $50,000
Building upon positive results of an initial 2016 SUNY Poly study, this proposal will construct baseline distributions of the microbial indicators E. coli and enterococci at 10 locations in the Utica/Rome area of the watershed. This project will seek to identify microbial contaminant sources, predict microbial concentrations following rain events, and provide guidance on the risk/recovery of the river to microbial contamination events.
