AIMS The study aimed to investigate the survival characteristics of Escherichia coli O157:H7 in farm water (FW), and in sterile distilled municipal water (SDW), stored outdoors under field conditions, with or without the addition of faeces (1% w/v), in a farmyard shed and the laboratory at 15 degrees C. METHODS AND RESULTS Water samples were inoculated with E. coli O157:H7 at 10(3) and 10(6) ml(-1), and sampled over a 31-day period. In FW stored outdoors in a field, E. coli O157:H7 survived… CONTINUE READING
