Description

While it seems sensible that costal bacteria counts would be connected to rainfall does when the rain falls matter? Maybe rain early in the rainy season matters more, because it's the first to flush pollutants into the oceans.

Use the new dataset, sandiegodata.org-beachwatch-4 to examine if there are particular months that are more likely to have higher than median bacteria counts. See the schema for the beachwatch dataset for columns that have values relative to the median and mean.

Also examine if the strongest correlations are not just with month, but with the sate ranges of the first rains. For instance, maybe correlate high counts with the number of days since the first storm of the season.
