Under the Beaches Environmental Assessment and Coastal Health Act of 2000 (BEACH Act), EPA committed to conduct quantitative microbial risk assessment (QMRA) (based on measurement of pathogenic organisms and indicators) to estimate illness at a freshwater beach impacted by agricultural animal sources of fecal contamination. This report documents EPA's activities to meet this commitment and addresses the following two questions: (1) What is the risk of illness associated with recreation at a freshwater beach impacted by agricultural animal (cattle, swine, and chicken) sources of fecal contamination, and (2) How do those risks compare to risks associated with freshwater beaches impacted by human sources of fecal contamination.
