Handbook of Water and Wastewater Microbiology
"Access to safe water is a fundamental human need and therefore a basic human right" --Kofi Annan, United Nations Secretary General
Edited by two world-renowned scientists in the field, The Handbook of Water and Wastewater Microbiology provides a definitive and comprehensive coverage of water and wastewater microbiology. With contributions from experts from around the world, this book gives a global perspective on the important issues faced in the provision of safe drinking water, the problems of dealing with aquatic pollution and the processes involved in wastewater management.
Starting with an introductory chapter of basic microbiological principles, The Handbook of Water and Wastewater Microbiology develops these principles further, ensuring that this is the essential text for process engineers with little microbiological experience and specialist microbiologists alike.

2.1). Viruses are obligate intracellular parasites. This means that to complete
their life cycles, viruses depend absolutely on functions provided by cells of a
host organism. Not all viruses can be grown in artificial culture. If this can be
The enteroviruses and rotaviruses thus represent useful markers of human faecal
contamination of water. Enteroviruses are, in general, much easier to culture than
are rotaviruses. There are currently four groups of rotaviruses recognized by ...
This is why healthy tissue cultures have a pink colour, whereas infected tissue
cultures turn bright yellow. It is important to maintain tissue cultures in the dark
since the neutral red indicator becomes toxic to cells if exposed to the light.
In tissue culture, enteroviruses undergo a complete infectious cycle. Viruses
infect cells in the culture, they replicate to form new virus particles and then the
infected cell bursts to release new virus particles. The enteroviruses can thus
easily be ...
Bacteria and other microbes in the sewage will flourish when inoculated onto a
tissue culture. These will outgrow the animal cells and will thus destroy the tissue
culture. If microbial growth is not contained, viruses will be unrecoverable from ...
