Understanding how changes in volumetric water content (theta) affect bacterial adsorption could help reduce transport of pathogenic and indicator bacteria that may be present in infiltrating wastewater. Three flow regimes that simulated infiltration from a household septic system were evaluated: saturated, unsaturated with a constant volumetric water content theta (constant unsaturated flow), and unsaturated with cyclic changes in theta (variable unsaturated flow). Escherichia coli was… CONTINUE READING
