A pilot study was conducted between February and April, 1989, on the occurrence of sewage-derived viruses and bacteria in the beach and nearshore waters off Bondi, Sydney.
Enteroviruses were isolated from 41% of a total of 66 sewage, sea-water, grease and sediment samples.
Poliovirus vaccine strains accounted for 78% of the isolates.
Adenoviruses were isolated four times and coxsackievirus B was isolated twice in samples that were collected away from the bathing area.
Rotavirus and hepatitis A virus were not detected.
