CAREX Toolbox Handout 5 - E. coli

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.

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.

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.
