Environmental Canine Services Sewage Detection

crush Skagit County contracted with Environmental Canine Services for the use of Crush, a sewage sniffing dog, to look for human sources of fecal coliform bacteria in the Samish Basin and Bayview. The work with Crush took two forms: direct use of Crush in the field to examine ditches, streams, and seeps for human sewage, and “bucket tests” in the Skagit County parking lot where Crush tested samples brought in from the Samish Basin.
