Theory and Guidance on Assessing and Managing Cryptosporidium Risk in Groundwaters

Price: £11  

The report reviews and categorises factors which influence the risk of contamination of groundwaters with Cryptosporidium oocysts, in order to provide the basis for risk ranking of sources. Treatment processes for physical removal of oocysts from groundwaters are reviewed, particularly membrane systems and proprietary depth filtration devices. Novel high intensity UV units may also offer promise for inactivation of oocysts. Technical and indicative cost information on these treatments are provided to help in the selection of suitable techniques for particular groundwater applications.
