Though coliform bacteria are used world wide as an indication of faecal pollution, the parameters determining the transport of Escherichia coli in aquifers are relatively unknown, especially for the period after the clean bed collision phase brought about by prolonged infiltration of waste water. In this research, the breakthrough curves of E. coli after total flushing of 50-200 pore volumes were studied for various influent concentrations in various sediments at different pore water flow… CONTINUE READING
