Legislation governing microbial water quality. Conclusions. Indicator organisms and the 'coliform concept': The origins of indicator organisms. The development of coliform as indicator organisms.

Conclusions. Evaluation of standard methods for the enumeration of coliforms from drinking waters: The multiple tube method (most probable number method). The membrane filtration method. Conclusions. Alternative techniques for the isolation and enumeration of coliforms and E. coli from drinking water: The presence-absence technique. Defined substrate technology (enzyme detection methods). Rapid methods. Immunodiagnostic techniques. The use of gene probes and PCR to detect coliforms in water. Conclusions. Alernative indicator systems for water quality analysis: Faecal streptococci. The faecal coliform/faecal streptococci (FC/FS) ratio. Clostridia perfringens. Bacteriophage. Bifidobacteria. Rhodococcus spp. Heterotrophic plate count bacteria. Other indicator organisms. Alternative indicators for tropical environments. Chemical indicators. Conclusions. The significance of emerging pathogens on water quality assessment: Giardia lamblia. Cryptosporidium spp. Viruses.
