In the wastewater profile editor, what are the units for coliforms? I have seen figures for raw sewage of 10^7 per 100ml, but that doesn't seem appropriate. Help isn't very clear.

The units for Coliforms are user-defined, hence why the units are lacking in the help file.

Thanks, Duncan. So I can choose an arbitrary number and scale the results, so long as I (and future users) know what scaling factor to use. It has the advantage that I don't need a definitive value from the start, and can adjust the results later. Makes sensitivity testing easier, too.
