Abstract Leptospirosis is an increasingly important zoonosis that infects humans and animals through contact with contaminated water. The primary challenges for carrying out water sampling for Leptospira spirochetes include isolation, concentration, and quantitative detection of small numbers of target organisms in water. The objectives of this work were to (1) develop a protocol to apply fluorescently labeled antibodies to water samples to detect virulent serovars of Leptospira, (2) develop a protocol to isolate Leptospira spirochetes from water samples, and (3) use these techniques to assess the occurrence of Leptospira in recreational waters in watersheds on Oahu and Kauai, in the Hawaiian Islands.
