Effect of retrograde microbial contamination on mobile drinking water systems

Jeldrik Moritz
The facultative pathogenic bacteria Enterococcus faecalis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Escherichia coli where tested for their ability to contaminate retrogradely mobile drinking water systems (MDWS). Water and biofilm samples were taken regularly from characteristic points in close-to-practice test plants and were analysed for the facultative pathogens according to international standards. Additionally, fluorescence in situ hybridization was applied for detection of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Each of the facultative pathogens carries the potential to contaminate retrogradely MDWS. Retrograde contaminations...
