Ambient Water quality Criteria for Bacteria 1986 gives the rationale for revised recreational water quality criteria (full body contact waters) under section 304(a) of the Clean Water Act. The criteria are based on E. coli and enterococci densities. The fresh water criteria are: E. coli 126/100ml; or enterococci 33/100ml. The marine water criteria are: enterococci 35/100ml. The confidence limits for application of the criteria vary with the degree of swimming use.
