On June 14, 15, and 16, 1999 members of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) National Exposure Research Laboratory (NERL-Cincinnati) and Office of Water (OW), Office of Science and Technology, Washington, DC (OST) held a workshop in Cincinnati, Ohio with invited non-EPA experts in environmental microbiology and statistics to plan a research study that will be used to develop guidance, to be used nationwide, for monitoring recreational waters for indicator bacteria. The purpose of this report is to describe the outputs of the Data Quality Objectives (DQOs) Process and discussions about developing a statistical design that will be used to implement the research study of recreational beach waters.
