They develop a genetic profile for bacteria in a FOOD sample,  compare it to known reference E.coli strains and then identify strains present.

CAN this method be used for Beach Testing, River Water, Lake Water, etc. – honestly I don’t have those answers, yet.  The answers to this question will be pursued. Knowing if the feces is of Human origin or from feral Cats/Dogs, Waterfowl, etc. is crucial to pin pointing the source of contamination. Is it upstream/downstream from point A, B, C   ?
