Drinking water, water used in food production and for irrigation, water for fish farming, waste water, surface water, and recreational water have been recently recognized as a vector for the transmission of pathogenic Escherichia coli, especially serotype O157:H7. We investigated the UV (253.7 nm) inactivation behavior and the capability of dark repair (liquid-holding recovery) and photoreactivation of seven pathogenic (including three enterohemorrhagic E. coli) strains and one nonpathogenic… CONTINUE READING
