Summary of "Occurrence of Extended Spectrum β-Lactamase (ESBL) Producing Bacteria in Urban Clinton River Habitat."

Recently, we reported the presence of extended spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) genes in Clinton River. Here, we determined whether Clinton River water (CRW) is contaminated with antibiotics and is a reservoir of antibiotic resistant bacteria.
