Sanitation actions are rare in the communities of Manguinhos, so evaluation of the sanitary conditions of the river waters and the peridomestic soils of the communities allows the diagnosis of the risk of contamination. This study evaluated coliform levels (total coliforms and Escherichia coli ) by the filter membrane method, and parasitological (by adapted Lutz and Baermann-Moraes methods) in the waters and soils of the Faria-Timbo, Jacare and Canal do Cunha Rivers that pass through the… Expand

Sanitary quality (bacteriological and physical-chemical) of drinking water in urban slums in Rio de Janeiro, RJ, Brazil
Water must meet the drinking water standards in order not to cause disease. In urban slums the infrastructure (water supply, sewage) is more precarious, leaving the population susceptible to healthExpand
Inadequate riparian zone use directly decreases water quality of a low-order urban stream in southern Brazil
Considering the current importance watercourses quality conservation, it is important to establish relationships between parameters that enable evaluation of the origins of changes in water quality,Expand
Scenario of the prevalence of parasites in soil/sand samples in Brazil
Introduction: Zoonotic diseases are transmitted from animals to humans, compromising their health. The high concentration of dogs and cats in urban areas plays an important epidemiological role onExpand
Virological Characterization of Roof-Harvested Rainwater of Densely Urbanized Low-Income Region.
The results suggest that the first flush diversion devices may not adequately remove enteric virus from the rainwater, and additional treatment of RHRW is required to mitigate potential health risks from potable use of captured water. Expand
Water scarcity is on the world stage as a challenge to be overcome in this century. The present paper reports the conditions in the country's water environments, in compliance with the standardsExpand
Gastroenteric Viruses Detection in a Drinking Water Distribution-to-Consumption System in a Low-Income Community in Rio de Janeiro
Investigation of viruses’ presence as an indicator of drinking water quality in low-income communities in the Manguinhos area, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil found precarious and inadequate environmental conditions characterized by the lack of local infrastructure regarding basic sanitation and waste collection could explain viral detection in drinking water in regions with a water supply system.

Drinking water quality in Brazilian urban slums
The study analyzed the quality of drinking water used in Brazilian urban slum residences according to the standards established in Brazilian regulations. Bacteriological (n=231) and physicochemicalExpand
Water restriction in different phenological stages and increased temperature affect cowpea production
ABSTRACT Water deficit and high temperatures are abiotic factors that most limit plant growth and development. However, its effects depend on crop development stage and on stress duration andExpand


Methods for Sanitary Inspection of Microbiological and Parasitary Quality of Water and Sand of Recreation Areas
Recreation areas have primary environmental contact matrices (water and sand) with the population and therefore need to be monitored periodically,dueto to the risks to human and animal health posedExpand
Condições sanitárias da água residencial, do solo peridomiciliar e dos rios das comunidades do território de Manguinhos, RJ
The study was carried out in Manguinhos Territory communities, RJ, who had one of the lowest Human and Social Development Index of the city of Rio de Janeiro. In this region the sanitation systemExpand
Monitoring the sand of beaches of two islands within Guanabara Bay, Rio de Janeiro state, was carried out by traditional methods and the ELISA immunological test, to determine the level and the influence of seasonality on environmental contamination. Expand
Monitoring of Cryptosporidium and Giardia river contamination in Paris area.
It is hypothesized that the origin of contamination is agricultural practices and possible dysfunction of sewage treatment plants during periods of heavy rainfalls, and high concentrations of protozoa found at the entry of drinking water plants justify the use of efficient water treatment methods.

Common beach sand contamination due to enteroparasites on the southern coast of Pernambuco State, Brazil.
Sand contamination due to parasites was evaluated on the beaches of Porto de Galinhas, Muro Alto and Maracaípe in southern Pernambuco State and it is suggested that further studies on beach sand contaminationDue to parasites should be conducted. Expand
Modeling the relationship between most probable number (MPN) and colony-forming unit (CFU) estimates of fecal coliform concentration.
A probabilistic model is constructed that provides a clear theoretical explanation for the variability in, and discrepancy between, most probable number (MPN) and colony-forming-unit (CFU) measurements, and is compared to water quality samples analyzed using both MPN and CFU procedures to determine whether transitions from one procedure to another are likely to cause a change in quality-based management decisions.
