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.

Infection with this virus is the ultimate cause of AIDS. The retrovirus particle
contains an RNA genome but when the virus infects a host cell, a DNA copy is
made of the virus genome. This subsequently becomes integrated into the
genome of its ...
Like hepatitis A, infection with hepatitis E is associated with exposure to
contaminated water and it is most common in the Far East. It, too, causes a
relatively mild self-limiting illness, except in pregnant women. The hepatitis E
virus can cause a ...
4 VIRUSES USED AS FAECAL INDICATORS As with faecal indicator bacteria,
viruses chosen to demonstrate faecal contamination of water are chosen
because of their resilient properties and their association with human infections.
Humans may harness viruses in the examination of water. Every major group of
organisms is susceptible to infection by viruses. This includes bacteria and the
viruses that can infect bacteria are known as bacteriophage. These viruses have
