There are two methodologies to monitor E.coli. The advanced method IDEXX, is the official Standard Operating Procedure for monitoring E. coli in the state of Utah. This requires access to an approved facility that has the equipment to process an IDEXX sample. The Easygel method is another method that provides quantitative results, but does not need any special equipment. The UWW program coordinator and the local watershed coordinator will work with the volunteers to identify the appropriate method needed for the data quality.
