Water quality assessment of Bulacao River, Cebu, Philippines using fecal and total coliform as indicators

  title={Water quality assessment of Bulacao River, Cebu, Philippines using fecal and total coliform as indicators},
  author={Eukene Oporto-Bensig and Mary S. Joyce and L. Flores and Fleurdeliz Maglangit},
Coliform bacteria have been used to evaluate the general quality of water. These bacteria can be found in the gut of both warm and cold-blooded organisms. Fecal coliform is a subset of this group. They have been characterized to grow at elevated temperatures and specifically associated with the fecal material of warm-blooded animals. Bulacao River was evaluated using coliforms (total coliform and fecal coliform) as indicators, in relation with physicochemical parameters such as biological… Expand
Assessment of Microbiological Quality of the River Damavand in Iran by Measuring Coliform Bacteria, Nitrate and pH of Water in Autumn
"The present study was aimed to test the water of the Damavand River in Iran for fecal coliforms, total coliforms, nitrate and pH in order to investigate the microbiological quality of this river.Expand
Convolutional neural networks on small unmanned aerial systems
In the revolutionary field of deep learning many difficult computer vision challenges of today are being impressively overcome by the application of these cutting edge technologies. The challenge ofExpand
Microbial contamination and its associations with major ions in shallow groundwater along coastal Tamil Nadu
The study inferred that highest microbial activity in the observed in the residential areas, cultivated regions and around the landfill sites due to the leaching of sewage water and fertilizers runoff into groundwater, may lead to the deterioration in the health of particular coastal region. Expand

Mangrove population has greatly reduced in several countries such as Philippines due to different factors such as clearing, overharvesting and water quality changes. The third factor includes theExpand


Bacteriological and environmental characterisation of the water quality in the Danube River Basin in the Galati area of Romania
A variation of parameters with respect to the ecodynamical characteristic of the Danube water quality such as temperature, pH, total dissolved solids, salinity and hydrogen sulphite reveal the preponderant role that abiotic factors play in the dispersion of biocontaminants in a broad basin ecosystem.

Modeling fecal coliform bacteria—I. Field and laboratory determination of loss kinetics
Field and laboratory studies were conducted to develop and verify the kinetic expressions and attendant coefficients required to simulate the loss of fecal coliform bacteria in lakes due to death [as mediated by irradiance (light) and temperature] and sedimentation. Expand
Predicting fecal coliform bacteria levels in the Charles River, Massachusetts, USA.
: In Massachusetts, the Charles River Watershed Association conducts a regular water quality monitoring and public notification program in the Charles River Basin during the recreational season toExpand
Contamination of drinking water by nitrates is an evolving public health concern since nitrate can undergo endogenous reduction to nitrite and nitrosation of nitrites can form Nnitroso compounds,Expand
Water-quality assessment: a screening procedure for toxic and conventional pollutants in surface and ground water. Part 2, (revised 1985)
New technical developments in the field of water quality assessment and a reordering of water quality priorities prompted a revision of the first two editions of this manual. The utility of theExpand
Using geographic information systems and regression analysis to evaluate relationships between land use and fecal coliform bacterial pollution
The results of the regression analyses indicate that proximity to areas with septic tanks, rainfall runoff from urbanized areas are important predictors of fecal coliform densities in the estuary, and ground saturation effects may be an important part of feces deposition in winter months. Expand
Housing Density and Bacterial Loading in Urban Streams
Data collected in this study demonstrate that fecal bacteria counts in urban tributaries were much higher in sewered basins than in nonsewered basins; fecal bacteria densities were related to theExpand
