‘‘It's like a weather forecast," said Donna Francy, a hydrologist with the U.S. Geologic Survey's Ohio Water Service Center in Columbus, who developed the model along with co-workers at the center. ‘‘They say there is a chance of rain.Are they right all the time?"

Francy said the system is better than previous methods.

"The Nowcast system is similar to a weather forecast except that current water-quality conditions instead of future conditions are estimated," said Donna Francy, USGS research hydrologist for the study. "Current bacteria levels are estimated with a computer model especially calibrated for each beach, which takes into account current weather and environmental conditions."

"The USGS will collect data for two years, develop mathematical models, and test a Nowcast system in 2012. If the Nowcast is successful at any of the study beaches, the system will be available to the public in 2013," said Francy.
If E. coli concentrations are found to increase as rainfall or others factors increase, we will continue to collect data a second year and then develop mathematical models," said Francy.

The first year of the study will involve logging water quality and environmental conditions, such as rainfall, water elevation and the number of gulls and geese at the beach, Donna Francy, of the USGS Ohio Water Science Center, stated in the project summary.
