  • a Weekly water samples were taken from 14 sites along Dunes Creek from June to November 1999 and from February to November 2000 (see Fig. 2 for locations of stations). One-way analysis of variance showed that the stations were significantly different in mean E. coli density (F13, 686 = 13.8, P = 0.001).

  • b Values with different symbols are significantly different (P ≤ 0.05).

  • c n, number of samples.
