    Article - En anglais

    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.
