<p>Through the CAREX project, we have tested a series of practical tools, and developed solutions and approaches to address aquatic weed, sediment, and nutrient management issues in agricultural waterways in lowland Canterbury.</p><p></p><p>We have developed a set of steps and toolboxes, underpinned by science, which can be applied by farmers, landowners and stakeholders to facilitate rehabilitation and improve agricultural waterway health.</p><p>We have collaborated with scientists at ESR to research and better understand microbial contamination in agricultural waterways. This handout is the fifth in a series and provides information on E. coli and tools for understanding microbial contamination of agricultural waterways.<br></p><p><br></p><p>Suggested citation: Devane, M., Febria, C.M., Hogsden, K.L., Devlin, H.S., Harding, J.S., and A.M.
