Review of the Fate of Enteroviruses and Indicator Organisms across Wastewater Treatment Processes

 
Price: £16  

Several wastewater treatment works were monitored to assess their performance in removing enteroviruses, coliforms, faecal streptococci and F+ coliphage across primary and secondary treatment processes. The processes selected were: activated sludge, biologically aerated flooded filters (BAFF), chemically assisted primary settlement (CAS) and oxidation ditch. The main findings were: · The operation and performance of a given process was probably site specific. · BAFF was potentially less effective than others in removing enteroviruses. · More enterovirus data were needed before firm conclusions on process performance can be made.
