Prolonged Salmonella Contamination of a Recreational Lake by Runoff Waters

By David G. Claudon, Donald I. Thompson, Eleanor H. Christenson, Gerald W. Lawton and Elliot C. Dick

Abstract

In the summer and fall of 1968, various Salmonella serotypes were isolated from a portion of Lake Mendota, the major recreational lake for Madison Wis. The apparent sources of these organisms were a residential storm sewer and a University of Wisconsin Experimental Farms' washwater drain. Salmonellae were isolated with regularity from a swimming beach located approximately 0.5 mile (0.8 km) from these sources
