In 2005, several tidal water bodies near Savannah, Ga., were found to violate state fecal coliform and dissolved oxygen regulations. When the city and nearby stakeholders drew up a holistic watershed management plan, bacterial source tracking and fluorometry enabled them to target pollution reduction efforts.
