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.

Human viruses (a–e) are relatively simple when compared with the T-even
bacteriophage that infects Escherichia coli (f). Many virus types are icosahedral (
a). Icosahedral viruses include enteroviruses and rotaviruses, used in the
10 THE USE OF BACTERIOPHAGE IN WATER TESTING The examination of
water for the presence of viruses need not necessarily imply a threat to human
health. Humans may harness viruses in the examination of water. Every major
Thus, in conclusion, it will be clear that the human intestine is the source of a
diverse range of bacteria, but that from the practical viewpoint many can be
ignored at present in the context of water testing. However, it must be realized
that such ...
This was confirmed by Mara and Oragui (1985) in Nigeria and Zimbabwe,
although very small numbers of S. bovis were found in human faeces. However,
these 'new' specific indicators of human and animal faecal pollution have several

Bacteroides spp. can be overcome by use of alternate detection methods.
