The presence of bacterial virus in groundwater and treated drinking water

The presence of bacterial virus in groundwater and treated drinking water

Environmental Pollution 63(4): 293-298

Ten raw urban well water samples and twelve water samples collected from distribution lines after the well waters were treated were examined for bacteriological and coliphage/bacteriophage populations. The raw well waters were found to contain <1/100 ml total coliforms and fecal streptococci, but they all contained varying concentrations of coliphage and bacteriophage. The treated waters were all found to have <1 total coliforms and fecal streptococci per 100 ml with the exception of one treated water sample from Community C. However, even though the treated water samples contained free and total chlorine levels varying from 0.05 to 1.5 ppm, they were all found to contain usually greater amounts of coliphage and bacteriophage than the raw well waters.
