Abstract
As part of the Chesapeake Bay-Susquehanna River Basins Project, the Chesapeake Field Station undertook extensive field investigations to determine the water quality in the Potomac River Basin. A study was initiated in winter 1967 to: 1. Determine the bacteriological water quality of the upper Potomac Estuary; 2. Relate bacterial distributions to other water quality parameters; 3. Evaluate an isolation procedure for Salmonellae; 4. Relate the comparative usefulness of coliforms, fecal coliforms, fecal streptococci and Salmonellae as water quality indicators; and 5. Identify probable sources of bacterial pollution in the area.
