Abstract: The association of microorganisms with sediment particles is one of the primary complicating factors in assessing microbial fate in aquatic systems. The literature indicates that the majority of enteric bacteria in aquatic systems are associated with sediments and that these associations influence their survival and transport characteristics. Yet, the nature of these associations has not been fully characterized. In this study, a combination of field experiments and mathematical modeling were used to better un…
