Transport and survival of human pathogenic microorganisms in groundwater and drinking water.

    Project Details


    The main aims of this project are (i) to identify human pathogenic microorganisms in groundwater downstream of sewage infiltration (ii) to extrapolate our current knowledge of bacterial and viral transport (iii) to analyse factors that affect their surface properties (iv) to examine the influence of geochemistry on the transport, survival and potential ineffectivity of human microorganisms (v) to identify the factors that determine the retardation of microorganisms in waterworks filter and in distribution systems.
