Microbial (Source Tracking) Indicators of Faecal Contamination in Water: A Current Perspective

Different microbiological faecal indicators are used in different   countries and jurisdictions. Therefore, it is important to   understand the potentials and limitations of these indicator   organisms before realistically implementing guidelines and   regulations to safeguard our water resources.     This study considers the history of indicator organisms, the   evolution of the analytical methodologies (biochemical and   molecular) and addresses the advantages and limitations of current   faecal indicator microorganisms.    (microbial source tracking); (MST); (bacterial source tracking);   (BST)
