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