Slow adoption of rapid testing: Beach monitoring and notification using qPCR.

Abhilasha Shrestha, Samuel Dorevitch,

In 2012 the US Environmental Protection Agency published new Recreational Water Quality Criteria, which for the first time, included criteria values and beach action values for quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) measurements or estimates of enterococci. The qPCR method makes it possible to generate indicator bacterial test results within several ... Read more >>

Fecal pollution source characterization at non-point source impacted beaches under dry and wet weather conditions.

Abhilasha Shrestha, Catherine A Kelty, Mano Sivaganesan, Orin C Shanks, Samuel Dorevitch,

Though Lake Michigan beaches in Chicago are not impacted by stormwater or wastewater outfalls, several of those beaches often exceed USEPA Beach Action Values (BAVs). We investigated the role of microbial source tracking (MST) as a complement to routine beach monitoring at Chicago beaches. In summer 2016, water samples from ... Read more >>

Solar Powered Microplasma-Generated Ozone: Assessment of a Novel Point-of-Use Drinking Water Treatment Method.

Samuel Dorevitch, Kendall Anderson, Abhilasha Shrestha, Dorothy Wright, Aloyce Odhiambo, Jared Oremo, Ira Heimler,

Ozonation is widely used in high-income countries for water disinfection in centralized treatment facilities. New microplasma technology has reduced the energy requirements for ozone generation dramatically, such that a 15-watt solar panel is sufficient to produce small quantities of ozone. This technology has not been used previously for point-of-use drinking ... Read more >>

Standardized data quality acceptance criteria for a rapid Escherichia coli qPCR method (Draft Method C) for water quality monitoring at recreational beaches.

Mano Sivaganesan, Tiong Gim Aw, Shannon Briggs, Erin Dreelin, Asli Aslan, Samuel Dorevitch, Abhilasha Shrestha, Natasha Isaacs, Julie Kinzelman, Greg Kleinheinz, Rachel Noble, Rick Rediske, Brian Scull, Susan Rosenberg, Barbara Weberman, Tami Sivy, Ben Southwell, Shawn Siefring, Kevin Oshima, Richard Haugland,

There is growing interest in the application of rapid quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) and other PCR-based methods for recreational water quality monitoring and management programs. This interest has strengthened given the publication of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-validated qPCR methods for enterococci fecal indicator bacteria (FIB) and has extended ...

Evaluation of multiple laboratory performance and variability in analysis of recreational freshwaters by a rapid Escherichia coli qPCR method (Draft Method C).

Tiong Gim Aw, Mano Sivaganesan, Shannon Briggs, Erin Dreelin, Asli Aslan, Samuel Dorevitch, Abhilasha Shrestha, Natasha Isaacs, Julie Kinzelman, Greg Kleinheinz, Rachel Noble, Rick Rediske, Brian Scull, Susan Rosenberg, Barbara Weberman, Tami Sivy, Ben Southwell, Shawn Siefring, Kevin Oshima, Richard Haugland,

There is interest in the application of rapid quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) methods for recreational freshwater quality monitoring of the fecal indicator bacteria Escherichia coli (E. coli). In this study we determined the performance of 21 laboratories in meeting proposed, standardized data quality acceptance (QA) criteria and the variability of ... Read more >>

Evaluation of rapid qPCR method for quantification of E. coli at non-point source impacted Lake Michigan beaches.

Abhilasha Shrestha, Samuel Dorevitch,

Most Great Lakes communities rely on culture-based E. coli methods for monitoring fecal indicator bacteria (FIB) at recreational beaches. These cultivation methods require 18 or more hours to generate results. As a consequence, public notifications about beach action value (BAV) exceedance are based on prior-day water quality. Rapid qPCR monitoring of ... Read more >>

Monitoring urban beaches with qPCR vs. culture measures of fecal indicator bacteria: Implications for public notification.

Samuel Dorevitch, Abhilasha Shrestha, Stephanie DeFlorio-Barker, Cathy Breitenbach, Ira Heimler,

<h4>Background</h4>The United States Environmental Protection Agency has established methods for testing beach water using the rapid quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) method, as well as "beach action values" so that the results of such testing can be used to make same-day beach management decisions. Despite its numerous advantages over culture-based ... Read more >>
