: During an EHEC outbreak with E. coli O104:H4 stx2-pos in northern Germany 2 sewage treatment plants (Cuxhaven and Stade) of highly affected areas were monitored for the presence of the outbreak strain. 7 efflux water samples were collected at 1 h and 6 h intervals. The overall E. coli content of the treated sewage water was approximately 35 000 CFU/100 mL in both treatment plants. Among these about 500 were ESBL-E. coli (1.4%). ESBL-Agar was used as selective medium as the outbreak strain is… Expand
