In this study, microbial indicators commonly used in public health were used, in conjunction with physical habitat and stream chemistry measures, to evaluate the ecological and sanitary condition of Oregon (USA) streams. Data were collected in 1997 and 1998, during the time of year when the rivers and streams were at their lowest discharge levels. While bacterial counts varied considerably in streams throughout Oregon, none were the cause of public health concern.
