Abstract: To meet a key performance indicator of the Safe, Clean Water and Natural Flood Protection Program (Safe Clean Water) Project B2 (Interagency Urban Runoff Program), the Santa Clara Valley Water District (District) collaborated with the City of Gilroy, City of Morgan Hill, and County of Santa Clara to enhance their efforts through interagency cooperation by: testing for FIB (Escherichia coli [E. coli] and enterococci) in the Pajaro River Watershed and comparing results to Federal water quality criteria; engaging in a Microbial Source Tracking (MST) investigation of select sites to determine possible sources of pathogens in the watershed; and focusing on sites within the Pajaro River Watershed where District employees and the public may be potentially exposed to microbial pathogens in the water. -- Executive summary.
