LOWER AMERICAN RIVER BACTERIA STUDY:
Birds Most Consistent Source of Contamination

The Central Valley Water Board, Sacramento Regional County Sanitation District, Sacramento Area Sewer District, Sacramento Stormwater Quality Partnership, and Sacramento County Regional Parks are collaborating on a phased study to identify the sources of fecal pollution in the lower 6-miles of the American River.  See map below
The results of Phase 2 were published in June, 2022.  Initial results in the Phase 2 study indicate that birds are the largest and most consistent source of fecal contamination, followed by dogs in some areas.  Humans were not a significant or consistent source of fecal contamination during the 2021 sampling period.  See Detection Frequency graph below
