This publication explains how factors including the reproductive capacity, ecology and habitat requirements of wild pigs compound their damages to riparian ecosystems and surface water systems. Also discussed are other contributors to bacterial impairments and the use of methods such as bacterial source tracking (BST) to identify the relative scale to which wild pigs deposit E. coli bacteria to water sources. The publication provides research on the benefits of wild pig abatement to water quality, habitat, native species, livestock and human health. (14 pp., 3 photos, 5 figures)
