Abstract: The spatial and temporal distributions of indicator bacteria in a small, multiple-use source drinking water reservoir in Southern California, USA were quantified over the period August 2001-July 2002. High levels of total and fecal coliform bacteria were present in Canyon Lake (annual geometric mean concentrations+/-SEM of 3.93+/-0.02 and 3.02+/-0.03 log cfu/100mL, respectively), while comparatively low levels of enterococci and E. coli were found (1.16+/-0.02 log cfu/100mL and 0.30+/-0.03 log MPN/100mL, respe…
