The Microbial Waste Management Program focuses on management of livestock and poultry carcasses and manure in order to mitigate food borne pathogens and water contamination.  Areas of specific focus include poultry carcass disposal in order to mitigate the presence of pathogenic organisms such as Salmonella and E. coli.  Other areas of focus include composting methods and pathogen detection in California’s extensive watersheds.
