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. Based on aesthetic considerations (precipitation of iron from solution and taste ...
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 ...

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.. ...

The presence of any pathogenic viruses in tap water has always been considered a potential public health concern. 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.
An improved method for detection of total coliforms and E. coli comprising a broth containing an ingredient that will encourage growth and repair of injured coliforms, buffers to maintain a pH in the range of 6.5-8, at least one agent that suppresses growth of gram positive cocci and spore-forming organisms, at least one active agent that will suppress growth of non-coliform gram negative bacteria, and at least one chromogen or fluorogen has been used effectively and is cost effective. In the preferred embodiment, both a fluorogen and chromogen were used. Preferred methods include use of filter and/or plates containing the growth-promoting ingredients and the indicators.
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 ...

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 ...

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.

The pH stability of an artificial sea-water is improved by adding one or more boron compounds thereto.
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

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).

Performance of the SBR in terms of commonly used physical, chemical and biological parameters has confirmed it to be a viable wastewater treatment option. This study further investigates the use of total coliforms, fecal coliforms and coliphages to evaluate the removal of selected microbiological indicators of potential pathogens by the SBR. Results from a pilot-scale SBR which received clarified sewage from a local treatment works treating a combined (domestic and industrial) sewage showed that increases in REACT time led to increases in the overall removal of the selected microorganisms. On average, up to 96% of total coliform and fecal coliform removals and up to 90% of coliphage removal was possible with the SBR operated with 2.5 h of REACT. During FILL, a long FILL (3h) resulted in reduction of coliforms while there was generally only a small reduction of coliphages. During REACT, a short REACT resulted in increase in selected microorganisms and the increase in coliphage numbers was ...

There are three ways that water samples are analyzed for indicator bacteria. The results of each of these techniques are considered to be equivalent.. Membrane Filtration Technique - Uses extremely fine paper filters through which the water sample is passed. These filters are then placed on bacteriological growth media that contain food specific to the indicator bacteria (total coliforms, fecal coliforms and enterococci). If these bacteria are present, they will grow on the filter and form colonies. These colonies are counted and the number of the original bacteria present in the water sample calculated. Results for the membrane filtration technique are reported as the number of colony forming units (CFU) per 100 milliliters of water sample or CFU/100ml. All three of the agencies collecting and analyzing ocean and bay samples in Orange County (the Health Care Agency and two local sanitation agencies - Orange County Sanitation District and South Orange County Wastewater Authority) use the ...
The coliform index is a rating of the purity of water based on a count of fecal bacteria. It is one of many tests done to assure sufficient water quality. Coliform bacteria are microorganisms that primarily originate in the intestines of warm-blooded animals. By testing for coliforms, especially the well known Escherichia coli (E. coli), which is a thermotolerant coliform, one can determine if the water has possibly been exposed to fecal contamination; that is, whether it has come in contact with human or animal feces. It is important to know this because many disease-causing organisms are transferred from human and animal feces to water, from where they can be ingested by people and infect them. Water that has been contaminated by feces usually contains pathogenic bacteria, which can cause disease. Some types of coliforms cause disease, but the coliform index is primarily used to judge if other types of pathogenic bacteria are likely to be present in the water. The coliform index is used ...
The University of Pretoria, supported by the Water Research Commission and collaborating organisations such as the City of Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality, Bloem Water and the eThekwini Municipality, is engaged in a research project to investigate and demonstrate the potential of extracting the available energy from existing and newly installed water supply and distribution systems. The Caledon-Bloemfontein potable water supply system supplies the majority of the water demand in Bloemfontein. The water is supplied to the Brandkop Reservoir, which is where the Bloem Water head office is located. Excess energy is dissipated through pressure control valves before being discharged into the reservoir. The benefit of this hydropower-generating application is that minimal civil works are required. There are virtually no negative environmental or social effects requiring mitigation and the anticipated lead times are short ...
KNAPPE project will carry out the state of knowledge and put emphasis on questions deserving attention such as: What is the list of most relevant pharmaceutical products (PPs) for the aquatic environment? Which indicators for supporting environmental managers, health authorities? What is the efficiency of urban and industrial sewage treatment plants over a year? What is the fate and behaviour of PPs in sewage treatment plants? If receiving waters are used for potable water supplies, does the presence of these compounds represent a potential hazard to human health? Could we solve some problems by environmental or cleaner technologies? What regulatory approaches, incentives, prevention actions can be implemented in order to lower PPs concentration in the environment? Does a European practical guidance can be developed? Can the impacts of PPs on the environment be reduced through the use of eco-pharmacostewardship approaches including the use of clean synthesis, classification and

The API profiles for all the pathogenic strains showed that they differed in three respects: production of lysine decarboxylase (LDC) and L-ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) and utilisation of saccharose. Variation in these three properties has been observed before in E. coli isolated from untreated surface waters and soil.29,30 It has furthermore been reported that E. coli can induce production of amino acid decarboxylases (such as LDC and ODC) in response to reduced pH conditions.31 This report illustrates the highly adaptable nature of E. coli which helps it survive in more acidic environments.32. Because the PCR-based detection method of Clermont20 was used to identify E. coli phylogenetic groups (genogroups), the four main groups (A, B1, B2 and D) can further be subdivided into seven subgroups to increase discrimination: A0, A1, B1, B22, B23, D1 and D2.33 It has been reported that ExPEC strains usually belong to genogroups B2 and D, while InPEC strains that cause severe diarrhoea-related ...
Human enteric viruses and protozoal parasites are important causes of emerging food and waterborne disease. Epidemiologic investigation and detection of the agents in clinical, food, and water specimens, which are traditionally used to establish the cause of disease outbreaks, are either cumbersome, expensive, and frequently unavailable or unattempted for the important food and waterborne enteric viruses and protozoa. However, the recent introduction of regulatory testing mandates, alternative testing strategies, and increased epidemiologic surveillance for food and waterborne disease should significantly improve the ability to detect and control these agents. We discuss new methods of investigating foodborne viral and parasitic disease and the future of these methods in recognizing, identifying, and controlling disease agents.

The results suggest that the mechanism of cell attachment is different on the PIII-treated and -untreated surfaces. On the PIII-treated surface, yeast cells were observed to attach more rapidly, with higher cell density and attachment strength than on the untreated surface. The distribution of cells was even across the surface without clumping (figure 1). FTIR (figures 4 and 7) and XPS (figure 6) analyses showed that the residues on the PIII-treated surface consisted of proteins and a small amount of lipids. With FTIR, the residue was found to be similar for both PS and PTFE. The protein-to-lipid ratio was always greater than one throughout the incubation (table 2). The lipids were physically adsorbed on the PIII-treated surface as they were not detected after washing with sodium hydroxide. On the other hand, the proteins remained both after sodium hydroxide and SDS washes, which illustrates that a significant fraction of the protein residue is covalently bound to the surface.. On the untreated ...

My Chlorine level is at 5ppm using the tf100 test kit. I had 2 pucks in the inline feeder but they have been gone for 5 days now. I am using the Nature2 cartridge because it came with the pool but will switch to BBB next season. PH is 7.6 T/A is 150 and CYA is 40. The water is crystal clear but I dont know why the CH level is not dropping. The pool gets full day sun but has a solar cover on it. Any ideas?

In 1991, Congress established the National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) Project to address where, when, why, and how the Nations water quality has changed, or is likely to change in the future, in response to human activities and natural factors. Since then, NAWQA has produced scientific data and knowledge that is used by national, regional, state, and local agencies to develop science-based policies and management strategies to improve and protect water resources used for drinking water, recreation, irrigation, energy development, and ecosystem needs. A prominent feature of NAWQA is the development of long-term consistent and comparable information on streams, rivers, ground water, and aquatic systems. The NAWQA Project is designed to answer these questions:. ...
Methods The techniques used for the detection of heterotrophic bacteria (HPC) in water were reviewed to establish if they are appropriate for the study of the health significance of heterotrophic bacteria. After reviewing the passbook ways of assessing the potential virulence of HPC that commonly occur in water a battery of tests was selected and set up in order to apply it to the virulence assessment of fresh isolates. The tests selected included assays for: Verotoxins using Vero cells: LT or CT type toxins using Y1 cells; adhesive and invasive factors in Hep-2 cells; and haemolysins using horse, human and sheep erythrocytes.. After a preliminary investigation the method chosen for the isolation of HPC for further study was the inoculation of volumes (0.1 and 0.5ml) of water onto R2A medium and incubation at 30 C and 37 C for seven days to maximise the recovery of as wide a range of heterotrophs as possible. HPC were isolated from 18 drinking water distribution systems in England and Waless and ...
