As part of a 2-year U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and National Park Service (NPS) project to better define microbial contamination in and near the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area (CRNRA), the USGS analyzed fecal-coliform bacteria data collected from May to October of 1994 and 1995, by the Georgia Environmental Protection Division. This data set included 14 Chattahoochee River and 22 tributary stream sites in the vicinity of the CRNRA and the reach of the Chattahoochee River downstream of the CRNRA and Metropolitan Atlanta. This paper summarizes the distribution and occurrence of fecal- coliform bacteria concentrations based on these data and is a condensed version of a USGS and NPS publication by Gregory and Frick (2000).
