Prevalence of Antibiotic Resistance in Drinking Water Treatment and Distribution Systems Article (PDF Available) in Applied and Environmental Microbiology 75(17) August with Reads. Under ideal circumstances, the presence of coliforms in a drinking water sample should indicate external fecal contamination of the water supply, which is the main premise behind the current Total Coliform Rule. Although this concept has served the industry reasonably well, it is not without flaws. Three hundred and four drinking water samples (2L/each) were collected along the drinking water distribution-to-consumption pathway in households, as well as healthcare and school units. 15 Colitag ® product for the determination of the presence/absence of total coliforms and E. coli is described in “Colitag ® Product as a Test for Detection and Identification of Coliforms and E. coli Bacteria in Drinking Water and Source Water as Required in National Primary Drinking Water Regulations,” August , available from CPI.

Drinking Water Quality This textbook provides a comprehensive review of the problems associated with the supply of drinking water in the developed world. Since the first edition of this book was published there have been enormous changes in the water industry, especially in the way drinking water is perceived and regulated. The goal of disinfection of public water supplies is the elimination of the pathogens that are responsible for waterborne diseases. The transmission of diseases such as typhoid and paratyphoid fevers, cholera, salmonellosis, and shigellosis can be controlled with treatments that substantially reduce the total number of viable microorganisms in the water. The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) requires the EPA to review and revise, as appropriate, each existing national primary drinking water regulation (NPDWR) at least once every six years (SDWA section (b)(9), 42 U.S.C. g-1(b)(9)).

EPA is promulgating National Primary Drinking Water Regulations that require the use of treatment techniques, along with monitoring, reporting, and public notification requirements, for all public water systems that use surface water sources.

Changes in water quality throughout drinking water distribution systems (DWDS) have long been overlooked. 2 As Fabris et al. () writes: “[T]he aim should be to provide high quality water at the customer tap, while in reality the goal is commonly rationalized to a more achievable target of providing high quality water leaving the water Cited by: 7.
