Community groundwater supplies are routinely monitored for drinking water standard compliance and are generally free of contamination. The most common health risk associated with drinking water is microbial contamination from disease-causing micro-organisms, such as bacteria, viruses and protozoa.

Microbial monitoring is a cornerstone of any watershed quality assessment. Most raw drinking water sources are susceptible to significant water quality changes as stresses are placed on the surrounding environment due to natural, accidental, or intentional contaminations. Groundwater supplies are derived primarily from by: 5. To examine the microbiological quality of groundwater wells located on South Bass Island, we sampled 16 wells that provide potable water to public water systems 15–21 September Methods We tested groundwater wells for fecal indicators, enteric viruses and bacteria, and protozoa (Cryptosporidium and Giardia).Cited by: The raw water quality and associations between the factors considered as threats to water safety were studied in 20 groundwater supplies in central Finland in – Faecal contaminations indicated by the appearance of Escherichia coli or intestinal enterococci were present in five small community water supplies, all these managed by local water cooperatives. Elevated Cited by: This finding agrees with previous work; i.e. previous groundwater monitoring in Ireland has shown that groundwater monitoring locations in Karst limestone areas show the greatest degree of microbiological pollution (Bradley et al., ), thus reflecting the inherently vulnerable nature of dynamic flow systems, in concurrence with the lack of Cited by: 2.
