The removal of E. coli bacteria at each stage of water treatment is presented, showing how the filtration stages contribute most to reduction of bacterial numbers in the water. At treatment works without filtration stages, the emphasis is put on catchment management to limit contamination of the raw water and ensure that the numbers of viable E. coli in the source water remain low. Routine monitoring of the raw water provides data on seasonal trends in numbers of E. coli bacteria and allows… CONTINUE READING
