*a*For continuous variables, the results are the least-square means (back-transformed for*E. coli*and turbidity). Within a column, values followed by the same letter are not significantly different at an alpha of 0.05 based on corrected multiple ’pairwise’ comparison procedures. CI, confidence interval.
