Title: Microbiological contaminants in groundwater
Author: "Environment Agency - National Groundwater and Contaminated Land Centre "
Document Type: Monograph
This booklet describes microbiological contaminants in groundwater. The realisation that groundwater quality and microbiology are intrinsically linked is still a relatively recent one. The potential sources of microbial contamination to groundwater are many and varied. However the available literature on the fate of introduced and indigenous microbes in UK aquifers is extremely limited. An assessment of the indigenous microbial activities and populations is required to be able to assess fully the impact of human activity on groundwater quality in terms of microbial load.
