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.
systems had been carried out and, in many cases, fungi were detected only
incidentally during the course of bacterial isolation programmes. Fungi are to be
found in raw, surface and groundwaters and may increase in numbers in storage
It is not usually possible to distinguish fungi in water samples with the naked eye
and some form of concentration is usually required as an initial step. Filtration is
often employed, similar to bacteriological methods (Anon., 1994), whereby ...
The range of dilutions required is a trial and error process depending on the
density of fungi present in the particular sample, but a range of 10-fold dilutions
from 100–1025 is sufficient for most cases. Fungal isolation programmes are
prone to ...

conditions, including unamended water, scavenging nutrients from whatever
sources that may be available, however dilute or recalcitrant, even the
