Epidemiological studies on salmonella in a certain area walcheren project 4. the incidence of salmonella in the sewage system in the feces of man and pets as well as in shops kitchens and lavatories in the village of aagtekerke the netherlands
As part of epidemiological investigations on Salmonella in Walcheren, the contamination of sewage water in the village of Aagtekerke was studied for a prolonged period. This sewage water was frequently contaminated by large numbers of Salmonella. To find the source of this contamination, the incidence of Salmonella in the sewage system, in the feces of man and pets as well as in shops, kitchens and lavatories in the village of Aagtekerke was studied for 3 wk in June 1977. Salmonella was only isolated from a few fecal samples of human and animal origin and from the sewage system (including the inlet water and effluents of the sewage works). Serotypes of strains isolated from human feces are similar to those present in the sewage system. This fact, in conjunction with results of bacterial counts, suggests that the sewage system was only contaminated by a small number of carriers. The reduction of contamination observed in the sewage system during the investigation could be evidence that Salmonella organisms cannot survive by themselves in an environment of this type, at least not at the temperatures recorded. Growth of organisms under more favorable conditions cannot be ruled out. A questionnaire about the dietary habits and kitchen hygiene of the local population showed that contamination within households, orginating with the food, is a real possibility.
