Particle Counting and Bacterial Spore Analysis for Water Treatment Works Monitoring

Price: £13  

The report describes the results of monitoring at five water treatment works using bacterial spores and particle counting, to assess their potential as indicators of the risk of Cryptosporidium oocyst breakthrough. Three alternative makes of particle counter showed very similar performance for monitoring filtered water. Particle counting was a more sensitive indicator than turbidity of the filtered water quality changes which occur at the beginning of a filter run. Bacterial spore measurement, particularly using aerobic Bacillus spores, showed potential as an indicator of treatment performance for particle removal from the raw water.
