Management of the microbial water quality in catchments
Expanded Title:First, a literature survey was undertaken to assess in situ measures that have been used to mitigate microbial pollution in surface waters. These include vegetated buffer strips, wetlands, stabilisation ponds, soil infiltration, settling basins and land management engineering. Secondly, new molecular analytical techniques, namely pyrosequencing and phylochip analysis, were investigated. Although successful in providing a detailed picture of bacterial species diversity and abundance, water-borne pathogens were seldom detected. Therefore, health risk assessments cannot be performed using these methods. However, the methods show potential for other more general investigations.
