A review on ingestion of water supplies by pathogenic bacteria


Author(s): Shobha Mangeshrao Maknikar

Abstract: The pollution of water resources with water-borne pathogens and illnesses that may be contracted as a result is a serious problem about water quality all over the globe. Evidenced by a large number of recent publications, the growing interest in controlling water-borne pathogens in water resources clearly attests to the need for studies that synthesise knowledge from multiple fields covering comparative aspects of pathogen contamination, and unify them in a single place in order to present and address the problem as a whole. This review paper attempts to develop the first comprehensive single source of existing information on pathogen contamination in multiple types of water resources, with the goal of providing a broader perspective of pathogen contamination in freshwater (rivers, lakes, reservoirs, groundwater) and saline water (estuaries and coastal waters) resources. Specifically, the paper focuses on freshwater and saline water resources. In addition, a detailed discussion outlines the difficulties that might arise when utilising indicator organisms. The potential effects of water resources development on the presence of pathogen contamination and the difficulties that still need to be overcome in the fight against pathogen contamination are both highlighted in this article.
