Description This metadata record describes the microbial uptake of nutrients by native planktonic and biofilm-associated bacteria and the inactivation of E. coli, MS2 bacteriophage, polio virus and Cryptosporidium parvum in the Upper Floridan Aquifer (approximately 1,000 feet below land surface) in the Okeechobee, Florida area. Groundwater samples were collected or accessed via the use of a mesocosm between 2018 and 2020 from a South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) monitoring well installed at the Kissimmee River Aquifer Storage and Recovery (ASR) facility, which is located at the discharge point of the Kissimmee River into Lake Okeechobee.
