Our responsibility is to identify the sites where contaminants are most abundant and delegate the task of removal to another group. Purpose The main purpose of this scientific article is to provide a way to describe the transport of pathogens, agents that cause disease, in the Bay of Vidy in Switzerland. Key Question The key question that the author is addressing is, “What effective methods can be utilized to determine how contaminated water spreads?” Supporting Information The most important information in this scientific article is that there are more than just one source of contaminated water.
