Price: £10  

This review is an expert independent assessment of the scientific literature on micro-organisms of concern in drinking water-related disease. It highlights those organisms of special concern and provides advice on their significance. The public water supplies in the UK are of good microbiological quality and are rarely the cause illness in the general population. Cryptosporidium remained the most important infectious disease threat to mains drinking water. Vigilance must be maintained to prevent potential problems and continue awareness of emerging pathogens. Recent research has shown that some private drinking water supplies with quality problems are associated with outbreaks of illness in communities.
