Item Identification

Title: Nutrient and Coliform Loading (NCL)
Short Name: NCL_Information
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2005-11-22

This is a database of available fecal coliform bacteria, fecal streptococci bacteria, and nutrient loading data. Loading for contaminants other than fecal coliform bacteria and nutrients are included when values occurred coincidentally within the same literature.


This website can be used to quickly identify available measures of loading from different landuses (bacteria and nutrients) and animals (bacteria only).

Data Quality


Reasonable effort was made to accurately describe source data, and all values were reviewed by teams of scientists.

Completeness Report:

The database will be updated regularly, but is not guaranteed to contain every appropriate reference.

Conceptual Consistency:

All data are believed to be logically consistent.


Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 443669

An online literature review was conducted during 2005, using the theme keywords listed in this metadata record as query keywords. Relevant published literature was obtained and, along with relevant websites, were reviewed for toxicity data.
