An undergraduate has just approached me requesting to test water
samples for a local environemtal group. I am familiar with the
basics of testing for fecal coliforms, but I have never applied the
technque in the real world. Which is considered the most reliable -

He also is interested in testing for dissolved nitrogen and
phosphorous. Any suggestions for methods to detect these?
