Samples were collected, processed, and analyzed for organics, estrogen equivalents, and fecal indicator bacteria. Filtered organic samples were sent to the National Water Quality Laboratory in Denver, Colorado. Unfiltered estrogen equivalent samples were sent to the Organic Geochemistry Research Lab in Lawrence, Kansas, for extraction, after which they were sent to the National Fish Health Research Laboratory in Leetown, West Virginia. Bacteria samples were processed at the Central-Midwest Water Science Center Iowa City, Iowa, office. Staff collected field parameters in-situ.
