The Poop Smart Clark program is an outreach program focused on reducing bacteria from poop in local waterways. This program helps to provide technical and financial assistance to community members to help improve this issue and includes everything from reimbursing people for repairing leaky septic systems to helping farmers reduce pasture mud.
Through Poop Smart Clark, this program uses DNA analysis of bacteria to not only detect poop in the water, but also identify the species of animal who did the pooping which can include dogs, horses, cows, humans, racoons, and more.
