ECS canines give immediate results in the field regarding the presence or absence of sewage contamination in storm water systems and surface water caused by leaking sewer pipes, illicit pipe connections and failing septic systems. They only indicate the presence of human sewage sources and ignore animal waste sources. These rapid, human specific results can reduce the number and expense of water samples traditionally needed to be collected and sent to the lab to determine the presence of human source pathogens, eliminates waiting for results, and allows immediate tracking of the contamination to its sources.
