In nine springs which are used for drinking-water faecal coliform. concentrations were monitored between May and April The results suggested a seasonal trend of higher faecal coliform concentrations in the dry season, and lower concentrations during the Ramallah area of the West Bank.

Seasonal Aspects of Faecal Coliform Concentrations in Nine Springs in the Ramallah Area. Birzeit University Community Health Unit: , 9 pp. Monitoring of fecal coliform concentrations in nine springs used for drinking in the Ramallah area was conducted between May and April Fecal coliform concentrations at the other two sites, LRII and BBL, were more variable (Fig. (Fig.2A) 2A) but also generally increased from spring to summer and then decreased towards winter. During spring and early summer , fecal coliform concentrations increased to 10,fold in periphyton within 7 weeks at all sites but increased. General coliforms are universally present, including in pristine spring water. They are of little concern at low levels, except to indicate the effectiveness of disinfection. Chlorinated water and water from perfectly sealed tube wells is the only water I've tested which had zero general coliforms.

presumptive fecal coliforms present in high concentrations (24). Serial dilutions were carried out with phosphate-buf fered saline (PBS; g of NaCl/liter, g.

This is the final report to DoE on contract PECD 7/7/ "Modelling in streams" awarded to the Institute of Hydrology The stated objectives of the project were " to ascertain the key processes by which faecal coliforms are transported through river catchments; to . Nigel J. Horan, in Handbook of Water and Wastewater Microbiology, 3 COLIFORM BACTERIA. Early water microbiologists defined coliform bacteria as those bacteria able to grow at 37°C in the presence of bile salts (used to inhibit non-intestinal bacteria) and able to produce acid and gas from lactose. Faecal coliforms were considered to be those coliforms which were of exclusively faecal.
