In Mpumalanga, 95% of the plants at the point of treatment and 84% at point of use complied with the South African water quality standard in terms of total coliforms. Seventy four percent of the plants were within the limits recommended by South African standards in terms of faecal coliforms at both the point of treatments and the point of use. Total coliform counts ranged between 0 and 380 cfu/100 mℓ at the point of treatment and between 0 and 180 cfu/100 mℓ at the point of use, while faecal coliform counts ranged between 0 and 3 cfu/100 mℓ at the point of treatment and between 0 and 12 cfu/100 mℓ at the point of use. In Limpopo, 64% of the plants at the point of treatment and 94% at point of use of the plants complied with the South African recommended standard in terms of total coliforms. The total coliform counts ranged between 0 and 3.6 x 103 cfu/100 mℓ at the point of treatment and between 0 and 250 cfu/100 mℓ at the point of use. In terms of faecal coliforms, 73% and 88% of ...
The City of Great Bend public water supply system violated a drinking water microbiological standard for total coliforms in its distribution system during September 2010, said Donald Craig, director of public works. Although this is not an emergency, you as customers have a right to know what happened and what is being done to correct the situation.. We routinely monitor for the presence of total coliform bacteria in our drinking water 15 times a month tested in 15 different zones, Craig said.. This is not an Emergency. Total coliform bacteria are generally not harmful themselves. Coliforms are bacteria which are naturally present in the environment and are used as an indicator that other; potentially-harmful, bacteria may be present.. Coliforms were found in more samples than allowed and this was a warning of potential problems, the director said. Usually coliforms are a sign that there could be a problem with the treatment or distribution systems (pipes). Whenever we detect coliform ...
Many water utilities are required to monitor source water for the presence of total coliforms, fecal coliforms, or both. The Colilert system, an application of the defined substrate technology, simultaneously detects the presence of both total coliforms and Escherichia coli directly from a water sample. After incubation, the formula becomes yellow if total coliforms are present and fluorescent at 366 nm if E. coli is in the same sample. No confirmatory tests are required. The Colilert system was previously assessed with distribution water in a national evaluation in both most-probably-number and presence-absence formats and found to produce data equivalent to those obtained by using Standard Methods for the Examination of Water and Wastewater (Standard Methods). The Colilert system was now compared with Standard Methods multiple-tube fermentation (MTF) for the enumeration of total coliforms and E. coli from surface water. All MTF tubes were confirmed according to Standard Methods, and subcultures were
A fecal coliform (British: faecal coliform) is a facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped, gram-negative, non-sporulating bacterium. Coliform bacteria generally originate in the intestines of warm-blooded animals. Fecal coliforms are capable of growth in the presence of bile salts or similar surface agents, are oxidase negative, and produce acid and gas from lactose within 48 hours at 44 ± 0.5°C. The term thermotolerant coliform is more correct and is gaining acceptance over faecal coliform. Coliform bacteria include genera that originate in feces (e.g. Escherichia) as well as genera not of fecal origin (e.g. Enterobacter, Klebsiella, Citrobacter). The assay is intended to be an indicator of fecal contamination; more specifically of E. coli which is an indicator microorganism for other pathogens that may be present in feces. Presence of fecal coliforms in water may not be directly harmful, and does not necessarily indicate the presence of feces. In general, increased levels of fecal coliforms ...
Bacterial water pollution is a significant problem because it is associated with reduction in the quality of water systems with a potential impact on human health. Faecal indicator bacteria (FIB) are usually used to monitor the quality of water, and to indicate the presence of pathogens in water bodies. However, enumeration alone does not enable identification of the precise origin of these pathogens. This study aimed to monitor the quality of bathing water and associated fresh water in and out of the bathing season in the UK, and to evaluate the use of microbial source tracking (MST) such as the host-specific based polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and quantitative PCR (qPCR) to recognize human and other animal sources of faecal pollution. The culture-dependent EU method of estimating FIB in water and sediment samples was performed on beach in the South Sands, Kingsbridge estuary, Devon, UK- a previously problematic site. FIB were present at significant levels in the sediments, especially ...
Question: Is there a difference between total microbe test and a total coliform test. What do the following results mean as far as safe drinking water is concerned, (5-10)(10-20)(400-500) (800-1000) Colony forming units(CFUs) of aerobic bacteria?. Thank you.. Answer: There is a difference between total microbes test and total coliform test. The former is a non-specific test for everything including the coliforms (if they are present). This test is commonly referred to as Heterotrophic Plate Count (HPC) or Total Aerobic Plate Count. HPC does not give an indication of the types of organisms present or their sources. The total coliform test is designed to detect bacteria belonging to the coliform group.. I am not sure whether the results above were CFUs per litre or per 100 mL. Assuming these were per 100 mL of water the first set of results would be considered insignificant provided coliforms were not present. The second two sets of results suggests the water is either not properly treated or is ...
This program is designed to provide analysis of the major elements of concern, primarily bacteriological monitoring and limited water chemistry.. Coliform. Coliforms are a broad class of bacteria found in our environment, including the feces of man. The presence of coliform bacteria in drinking water may indicate a possible presence of harmful, disease-causing organisms.. E. coli. E-coli is the most prevalent member of the fecal coliform group. The occurrence of E. coli in water is considered a specific indicator of fecal contamination and the presence of enteric pathogens.. Heterotrophic Plate Count. The HPC formerly known as the standard plate count is a procedure for estimating the number of live Heterotrophic bacteria in water. It is used to measure the changes in water treatment and distribution or in swimming pools. ...
Thermotolerant coliforms are a sub-group of coliforms that are able to grow at 44.5 ± 0.2°C. E. coli is the most common thermotolerant coliform present in faeces and is regarded as the most specific indicator of recent faecal contamination because generally it is not capable of growth in the environment. In contrast, some other thermotolerant coliforms (including strains of Klebsiella, Citrobacter and Enterobacter) are able to grow in the environment and their presence is not necessarily related to faecal contamination. While tests for thermotolerant coliforms can be simpler than for E. coli, E. coli is considered a superior indicator for detecting faecal contamination… ADWG. Iron.

The New Jersey regulations require weekly testing for bacteria by a State Certified Laboratory and testing every two hours for pH and disinfectants (such as free chlorine or bromine) in swimming pools, whirlpools, spas and hot tubs. Lakes and beaches have to test for bacteria weekly. The bacterial tests are the standard plate count and total coliform in swimming pools, the standard plate count and Pseudomonas aeruginosa in whirlpools, spas and hot tubs, and E. coli in lakes.. The NJDEP is requiring enterococci testing for ocean beaches. The enterococci result shall not exceed 104 enterococci per 100 ml. E. coli has replaced fecal coliform in natural waters ...
The safety of drinking water is evaluated by the results obtained from faecal indicators during the stipulated controls fixed by the legislation. However, drinking-water related illness outbreaks are still occurring worldwide. The failures that lead to these outbreaks are relatively common and typically involve preceding heavy rain and inadequate disinfection processes. The role that classical faecal indicators have played in the protection of public health is reviewed and the turning points expected for the future explored. The legislation for protecting the quality of drinking water in Europe is under revision, and the planned modifications include an update of current indicators and methods as well as the introduction of Water Safety Plans (WSPs), in line with WHO recommendations. The principles of the WSP approach and the advances signified by the introduction of these preventive measures in the future improvement of dinking water quality are presented. The expected impact that climate change will
This study was carried out to determine the physico-chemical and bacteriological quality of water from various sources in Kithimani location and explores the effectiveness of common water treatment methods. Selected metals and non-metals ions were determined colorimetrically while turbidity was measured using a turbidimeter. pH, electrical conductivity, dissolved oxygen (DO) and temperature were measured using a portable universal multiline P4 WTW meter while total alkalinity was determined titrimetrically. The load of coliform bacteria contamination was determined by Millipore filtration method. Screening for the presence of pathogenic bacteria was carried out using standard methods. The levels of the properties investigated were each compared with the recommended drinking water standards according to Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS) and World Health Organization (WHO). The most contaminated water source identified based on the faecal coliform colony count was subjected to mechanical filtration ...

The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of bacterial species associated with smoked and fresh Bonga (Ethmalosa fimbriata) sold at two different markets in Uyo using standard microbiological techniques and their susceptibility to antibiotics (cephalosporins) using Disc Diffusion Technique (DDT). The results of the bacteriological status of both fresh and smoked Bonga fish showed variations in the total bacterial and total coliform counts in different anatomical parts (skins, gills and intestine). The highest total bacterial counts was recorded from gills (9.2x105 cfug-1) and lowest in skin (4.3x105 cfug-1) in fresh bonga fish, while the highest total bacterial counts was obtained in intestine (7.7x104 cfug-1) and lowest in skin (3.1x104 cfug-1) in smoked Bonga fish. The total coliform counts of the fresh Bonga fish ranged from 3.3x102 to 4.1x103, 3.6x102 to 3.1x103 and 4.3x102 to 7.5x103 in skins, intestines and gills, respectively. In smoked fish, the skin had the lowest total ...
The impact of a multitude of toxic chemicals, or xenobiotics, on diverse aquatic environments and the need to consider such factors in adjacent land use and disposal situations has necessitated the development of usable analytical predictive approaches. A microbial and enzymatic assessment protocol for determining the environmental effect and fate of these manufactured chemicals in coastal wetlands was devised. The protocol combined in situ analyses of interrelated soil/sediment microenvironments with statistical and analytical laboratory microcosm approaches in presenting valid predictive models of xenobiotic fate and effect. The general objective of this combined field/laboratory analysis was to provide a better understanding of biotic and abiotic factors that influence toxic chemical breakdown over a range of salinity conditions. An overview of research in the area of microcosm development and design was first outlined followed by a technical description of two aquatic microcosm systems developed in
Microbiological contamination of drinking water may cause short-term gastrointestinal disorders, resulting in cramps and diarrhea that may be mild to severe. Other diseases of concern are viral hepatitis A, salmonella infections, dysentery, typhoid fever and cholera. Coliform bacteria are always present in the digestive systems of humans and animals and do not themselves cause disease. However, when present in drinking water, they indicate the possible presence of disease bacteria. Soil or decaying vegetation may also be a source for coliform contamination of water supplies. Analysis for total coliform bacteria is the EPA standard test for microbiological contamination of a water supply. A positive test result reported as present indicates the presence of coliform bacteria.. ...

This study reports the presence levels of viruses and indicator bacteria in the water body of East Lake and treated tap water. During a year s work,indicator bacteria and viral analysis were performed on each sample, we found that total plate count is 2×10~3-6.8×10~8/L, total coliforms is 130-5.5×10~4/L,fecal eoliforms is 10-960/L, coliphage is 0.35-65CFU/L, average is 26.48CFU/L, enteroviruses ...
This review paper analyses the trends in pathogen detection and other recent developments in the field. The detection of pathogenic microorganisms is essential to end-users of water systems, particularly if the water is supporting life as an end-user. The outbreak of pathogenic waterborne disease is caused by coliforms and E. coli and as such these organisms need to be monitored for such events arising particularly as they are a health issue for humans. The conventional methods of choice have been media-based growth and culturing and multiple tube fermentation methods. Both of these methods are standard protocols and also take in excess of 48 hours to perform, meaning results are somewhat slow. Because the protocols take time, there are clearly issues with time to react to such contamination events, representing a golden opportunity to develop a sensor with near-real time capability. The review explores new and emerging methods that could potentially be developed into near-real time sensors. We ...
A culture medium and blood specimen are introduced into a sealable glass vial having a headspace gas mixture such that a change in the gas mixture composition can be monitored by a chemically sensitive material in the vial comprising a mixture of a fluorophore and a chromophore. The fluorophore exhibits a long fluorescence decay time and a fluorescence intensity that depend on a first chemical parameter, such as oxygen concentration. The chromophore exhibits an optical transmission that depends on a second chemical parameter, such as carbon dioxide concentration, the optical transmission of the chromophore changing with the second chemical parameter either within the excitation or within the emission wavelength range of the fluorophore.

Thermotolerant Escherichia coli is the primary Fecal coliform illuminated after 24 hours in test media at 44.5 C. EPA approved test media suppress responses from other bacteria. E.coli is one of about 30 deadly pathogenic groups that make up a coliform.
Expert Tony Lewis said the levels found were concerning. These should not be present at any level - never mind the significant numbers found, he added.. Cleanliness of tables, trays and high chairs at the chains was also tested at 30 branches. Seven out of 10 samples of Costa ice were found to be contaminated with bacteria found in faeces.. What is concerning to the expert? Fecal coliform.. I was introduced to fecal coliform when investigating wash water and vegetables at Ontario (thats in Canada) greenhouses 15 years ago. We were looking for analytical methods to provide some feedback to producers. We sampled the water for coliform and generic E. coli - and the veggies for generic E. coli and Salmonella. We had initially started looking for coliform and fecal coliform but some smart produce microbiologists suggested the indicator group wasnt telling folks much.. Or as Mike Doyle and Marilyn Erickson wrote in Microbe in 2006, the fecal coliform assay should at a minimum be redefined to ...

The combination of ever-growing contamination from various sources (industry, agriculture and domestic uses), the toxicity of contaminating compounds, and their extreme persistence in the environment, define a complex challenge and serious threat. Feasible technological responses to deal with growing deterioration in water resource quality are difficult to develop, largely because of the wide variety of contaminants having different properties, the stringent environmental standards that must be met, and the inherent heterogeneity of natural aquatic systems. The quest for cost-effective, environmentally-acceptable methods that can target a wide spectrum of contaminants, in situ and ex situ, is urgent and critical today more than ever.. The approach of the technology presented here is to reduce their oxidation state, i.e., to transform them electrochemically. In most cases, complete transformation of contaminants from the oxidized-organic group produces environmentally innocuous compounds, while ...

Management of drinking water safety is changing towards an integrated risk assessment and risk management approach that includes all processes in a water supply system from catchment to consumers. However, given the large number of water supply systems in China and the cost of implementing such a risk assessment procedure, there is a necessity to first conduct a strategic screening analysis at a national level. An integrated methodology of risk assessment and screening analysis is thus proposed to evaluate drinking water safety of a conventional water supply system. The violation probability, indicating drinking water safety, is estimated at different locations of a water supply system in terms of permanganate index, ammonia nitrogen, turbidity, residual chlorine and trihalomethanes. Critical parameters with respect to drinking water safety are then identified, based on which an index system is developed to prioritize conventional water supply systems in implementing a detailed risk assessment ...

A process gas supply system at the gas supply point includes an automated means for evacuating gas in a process line fed by the process gas supply system when an abnormal event occurs. The process gas supply system of this invention eliminates the need for any special valves or piping at the point of use of the process gas as well as the need for a return line from the point of use to the process gas supply system to purge the process line. A process gas is contained in a cylinder under pressure. The cylinder is coupled to a process line by the process gas supply system. The process gas supply system includes a gas flow controller and an automatic evacuation system. The gas flow controller controls the supply of the process gas from the cylinder to the process line. In an abnormal event, process gas flow from the cylinder is blocked by the gas flow controller and the automatic evacuation system evacuates the process gas not only from the gas flow
Water-related diseases are of great concern in developing countries like Nepal. Every year, there are countless morbidity and mortality due to the consumption of unsafe drinking water. Recently, there have been increased uses of bottled drinking water in an assumption that the bottled water is safer than the tap water and its use will help to protect from water-related diseases. So, the main objective of this study was to analyze the bacteriological quality of bottled drinking water and that of municipal tap water. A total of 100 samples (76 tap water and 24 bottled water) were analyzed for bacteriological quality and pH. The methods used were spread plate method for total plate count (TPC) and membrane filter method for total coliform count (TCC), fecal coliform count (FCC), and fecal streptococcal count (FSC). pH meter was used for measuring pH. One hundred percent of the tap water samples and 87.5 % of the bottled water samples were found to be contaminated with heterotrophic bacteria. Of the tap

High-throughput cultivation studies have been successful at bringing numerous important marine bacterioplankton lineages into culture, yet these frequently utilize natural seawater media that can hamper portability, reproducibility, and downstream characterization efforts. Here we report the results of seven experiments with a set of newly developed artificial seawater media and evaluation of cultivation success via comparison with community sequencing data from the inocula. Eighty-two new isolates represent highly important marine clades, including SAR116, OM60/NOR5, SAR92, Roseobacter, and SAR11. For many, isolation with an artificial seawater medium is unprecedented, and several organisms are also the first of their type from the Gulf of Mexico. Community analysis revealed that many isolates were among the 20 most abundant organisms in their source inoculum. This method will expand the accessibility of bacterioplankton cultivation experiments and improve repeatability by avoiding normal ...
The Western Cape Water Supply System (WCWSS) provides water to the communities of Greater Cape Town, Stellenbosch, Paarl and Wellington, as well as to towns on the West Coast and in the Swartland region. Irrigators along the Berg and Eerste rivers and irrigators and urban users in the Riviersonderend catchment, in the Breede Water Management Area (WMA), also receive water from the system. The major water user from the WCWSS is the urban sector within the City of Cape Town (CCT).. The main storage dams of the WCWSS are the Theewaterskloof and Voëlvlei dams (owned and operated by the Department of Water and Sanitation (DWS); the Berg River Dam (owned by the Trans Caledon Tunnel Authority and operated by the DWS) and the Wemmershoek, Upper Steenbras and Lower Steenbras dams (owned and operated by the CCT). The water storage in the system is evaluated towards the end of the wet season (no later than 1 November), to assess whether or not supplies must be restricted for the following year, to ensure ...

Biological stability refers to the inability of drinking water to support microbial growth. This phenomenon was studied in a full-scale drinking water treatment and distribution system of the city of Zürich (Switzerland). The system treats lake water with successive ozonation and biological filtration steps and distributes the water without any disinfectant residuals. Chemical and microbiological parameters, notably dissolved organic carbon (DOC), assimilable organic carbon (AOC), heterotrophic plate counts (HPC) and flow-cytometric total cell concentration (TCC), were measured over an 18-month period. We observed a direct correlation between changes in the TCC, DOC and AOC concentrations during treatment; an increase in cell concentration was always associated with a decrease in organic carbon. This pattern was, however, not discerned with the conventional HPC method. The treated water contained on average a TCC of 8.97 × 104 cells ml-1, a DOC concentration of 0.78 mg l-1 and an AOC ...

Non-microbiologists may assume that the goal of water utilities should be the elimination of all microbes from our drinking water. But the water we drink has never been sterile; perfectly safe water contains millions of non-pathogenic microbes in every glassful. Like every other human built environment, the entire water distribution system - every reservoir, every well, every pipe, and every faucet - is home to hundreds or thousands of species of bacteria, algae, invertebrates, and viruses, most of which are completely harmless to humans. In April, 2012, the American Academy of Microbiology convened a colloquium to assess what is known about the microbial inhabitants of the water distribution system and to propose goals for advancing our understanding of these communities in order to enhance the safety of our drinking water and the resilience of our water infrastructure.
Scientists at Trinity College Dublin (Ireland) have developed a fully automated system that eradicates bacterial contamination in hospital water tanks, distribution systems and taps. Hospital washbasin taps and output water are reservoirs of bacteria in a hospital environment. This can have serious adverse consequences for patients. It has been estimated that hospital-acquired pseudomonas aeruginosa pneumonia originating from hospital water systems kills over 1400 patients annually in the USA. Severely ill patients and patients in high dependency units are particularly vulnerable to this type of infection.

An improved composition for preparing artificial sea-water comprises an electrolyte mixture which, upon being dissolved in a proper amount of water, forms an aqueous solution which simulates natural sea-water in composition except that it contains one or more boron compounds within a concentration range from 0.002 to 0.05 w/v % calculated as boron. The pH stability of an artificial sea-water is improved by adding one or more boron compounds thereto.
2018 Institute of Food Technologists® Abstract: Blueberry purée was developed using hydrodynamic cavitation technology. The product was made from entire blueberries without adding any food additives. In this study, microbial reduction following each processing stage (at the industry setting) and after product pasteurization at 86, 88, 90, 92, 94, and 96 °C was investigated. Microbial quality including total plate counts, yeast and molds, and heat-resistant molds counts was determined. Shelf life of pasteurized products stored for up to 24 weeks at room temperature were assessed for microbial quality, soluble solids (°Brix), titratable acidity (citric acid %), pH, viscosity (cP) and flow rate (cm/30 s). Our results indicated that heat-resistant molds, initially present in frozen blueberries with counts at 2.03 log CFU/200g, were totally inactivated at 94 to 96 °C with 1 to 2 min holding time. Shelf life study showed that no product spoilage was caused by bacteria, yeasts and heat-resistant ...
Spoilage of processed food products caused by spoilage microorganisms has been reported repeatedly. Among them are heat-resistant molds, which usually contaminate fruits on or near the ground and survive heat treatments used for fruit processing. Heat-resistant fungi can grow and spoil the products during shelf life stored at room temperature and result in great economic losses. In this study, blueberry puree products were developed using cavitation technology. Microbial quality including total plate counts, yeast and molds counts and heat-resistant molds of frozen blueberry materials and processed products following pasteurization at 86, 88, 90, 92, 94 and 96°C (at industrial settings) were determined. Shelf life study of pasteurized blueberry products included periodical checks of microbial quality, soluble solids (Brix %), titratable acidity (citric acid %), pH, viscosity (cP) and flow rate (cm/30 s) for up to 24 weeks at room temperature. Our results indicated that heat-resistant molds, ...
Aim: The aim of this study was to assess the microbiological quality of Ghanaian bottled and plastic-bagged drinking water sold on the streets of Metropolitan Kumasi, Ghana. Methods and Results: Eight bottled, 88 factory-filled plastic sachet and 40 hand-filled hand-tied polythene-bagged drinking waters were examined for the presence of heterotrophic bacteria total viable counts (TVCs), indicators of faecal contamination (total coliforms, faecal coliforms and enterococci) and for lead, manganese and iron. Heterotrophic bacteria were found in all three types of water with TVCs per millilitre ranging from 1 to 460 for bottled water, 2-6·33 × 105 for factory-bagged sachet water and 2·33 × 103-7·33 × 1012 for hand-filled hand-tied bagged water. None of the microbial indicators of faecal contamination were detected in bottled water, whereas 4·5% of the factory-bagged sachets contained total coliforms and 2·3% faecal coliforms, and 42·5% of the hand-filled hand-tied bags contained total ...

Total coliform count is commonly used to assess contamination level of drinking and swimming waters, especially with pathogenic bacteria of intestinal origin. The common sources of coliforms in Kashmir Himalayan lakes include point source discharges (raw sewage, combined sewer overflows, effluents from wastewater treatment plants, industrial sources) and non-point source discharges (agriculture, forestry and urban run-off). In the present study, total coliforms were enumerated using a multiple tube fermentation technique with lactose broth as the presumptive medium, eosine-methylene-blue (EMB) agar medium as the confirmatory medium and brilliant green bile broth for completed test. All the samples obtained from the lake were positive with respect to the coliform occurrence, though the count was variable ranging between 4 and 460 MPN/100 ml. Highest proportion of indicator coliforms was found in the water samples collected at the site surrounded by residential hamlets (site II) in comparison to
Water quality is one of the vital elements of a thriving, healthy reef. It also affects human health either directly or indirectly.. MES conducts sea sampling around member resort properties twice a year in May and November representing summer and winter seasons in Fiji.. The four constituents tested on seawater results are faecal coliform (FC) bacteria, salinity and nutrients- phosphates (P) and nitrates (N).. The results are compared with the Australian and New Zealand Environment Conservation Council (ANZEEC 2002) Seawater Standards and guidelines ensuring that the levels nutrients do not affect coral growth and faecal coliform level do not affect public health and seawater is safe for primary and secondary recreational activities.. The acceptable level of nitrates and phosphate that will not cause eutrophication (excessive growth of algae) is 0.01-0.06 mg/L and 0.001-0.010 mg/L respectively. The acceptable level of faecal coliform bacteria is less than 1 FC/ 100 ml.. MES conducted its last ...

The problem of stochastic (i.e. robust) water distribution system (WDS) design is formulated and solved here as an optimisation problem under uncertainty. The objective is to minimise total design costs subject to a target level of system robustness. System robustness is defined as the probability of simultaneously satisfying minimum pressure head constraints at all nodes in the network. The decision variables are the alternative design options available for each pipe in the WDS. The only source of uncertainty analysed is the future water consumption uncertainty. Uncertain nodal demands are assumed to be independent random variables following some pre-specified probability density function (PDF). Two new methods are developed to solve the aforementioned problem. In the Integration method, the stochastic problem formulation is replaced with a deterministic one. After some simplifications, a fast numerical integration method is used to quantify the uncertainties. The optimisation problem is solved ...
The benefits of controlled algae growth are well documented. Algal biomass uses are numerous including: biofuels, bioremediation, medicine, and other bioproducts. Currently algae are largely grown in fresh water. The ability to culture algae in non potable water would allow for the benefits of algal production without using water suitable for direct human use. Two largely available sources of non potable water are produced water (coal bed methane wastewater) and seawater. In this study, one liter pilot scale Rotating Algal Biofilm Reactors (RABR) were used as the bioreactor platform to grow cyanobacterial biofilms utilizing these non potable water sources. RABR culture was used opposed to suspended culture to increase the solids concentration of the harvested algae with minimal additional energy input. Both biomass production and the effects of the algae on the total nitrogen and phosphorus composition of the wastewater were examined periodically. In addition, the composition of the algae after
The water distribution system consists of the path that finished drinking water takes after it leaves the treatment plant to the consumers taps. It can include storage tanks and finished water reservoirs, water mains and laterals, service lines to the home, plumbing and taps and shower fixtures. Water encounters many hazards along the way that can significantly alter its quality and safety.. Total waterborne disease outbreaks have been in general decline resulting from the changes in regulations and practices that have occurred since the implementation of the Safe Drinking Water Act, starting about 1976-1980. Microbial indicator monitoring is enforced, several filtration rules require surface waters, and groundwaters under the influence of surface waters, to be filtered and disinfected. Vulnerable groundwaters must be disinfected, and lead and copper corrosion potential is being assessed and corrected. Numerous disinfection byproducts and chemicals have been regulated.. While reported ...
Infrastructural problems force South African households to supplement their drinking water consumption from water resources of inadequate microbial quality. Microbial water quality monitoring is currently based on the Colilert®18 system which leads to rapidly available results. Using Escherichia coli as the indicator microorganism limits the influence of environmental sources on the reported results. The current system allows for understanding of long-term trends of microbial surface water quality and the related public health risks. However, rates of false positive for the Colilert®18-derived concentrations have been reported to range from 7.4% to 36.4%. At the same time, rates of false negative results vary from 3.5% to 12.5%; and the Colilert medium has been reported to provide for cultivation of only 56.8% of relevant strains. Identification of unknown sources of faecal contamination is not currently feasible. Based on literature review, calibration of the antibiotic-resistance spectra of
Many studies require the quantitative determination of bacterial populations. The two most widely used methods for determining bacterial numbers are: The standard plate count method. Spectrophotometer (turbid metric) analysis. The standard plate count method is an indirect measurement of cell density ( live bacteria). The spectrophotometer analysis is based on turbidity and indirectly measures all bacteria (cell biomass), dead and alive.
During the process of filter feeding, bivalve molluscan shellfish such as oysters and mussels, can accumulate human pathogens originating from sewage polluted waters. The major pathogens that cause outbreaks of sickness and diarrhoea in the community are viruses, particularly Norovirus (NV). It is not possible to detect these viruses in shellfish without the use of technologically complex molecular methods, which are time consuming, difficult and expensive. Therefore faecal coliforms and E. coli have been adopted as indicator organisms to assess the quality of shellfish flesh and to predict the risk of exposure to pathogenic viruses. However, E. coli and faecal coliforms are found in both human and animal wastes. Existing methods for counting these bacteria do not distinguish between bacteria of human and animal origin. To help assess the potential risk to the consumer, and to assist in alleviating the problem of organic contamination of shellfisheries, it is important to know if the pollutant ...

The purposes of this study were to evaluate virus removal in treatment of water supplies by an in-line direct filtration pilot plant system and to suggest a system design to enhance virus removal. Isotherm and jar tests were conducted to evaluate the effects of pH, sodium ion concentration, and coagulants (alum and cationic polyelectrolytes Cat-Floc T, Nalco 8102, and 8103) on the bacteriophage MS2 contained in water. Isotherm studies were also conducted to assess the kinetic adsorption of MS2 to sand, anthracite, and garnet. Rapid sand, dual-media, and multi-media filters were tested in continuous in-line direct filtration operations. Approximately 95 percent reduction in virus concentration was observed at pH 9. Zero to 0.5 mg/1 of sodium ion present in water had no significant effect on the virus. Alum dosages below 20 mg/1 did not remove the
