Water water everywhere...and not a drop to drink

It’s important to note there are several strains of E-coli, and not all produce the physical ailments we read about from recall notifications, or drinking water supply contamination

Which parts of the population are more susceptible to falling victim to e-coli related illnesses? Typically, the answer is young children, seniors, and immunocompromised individuals will experience the most virulent and debilitating symptoms. Typically, people will experience abdominal cramps, diarrhea, hemorrhagic colitis, vomiting, and sometimes fever.

How is this transmitted? Unfortunately, e-coli is a fierce survivor and can be unusually difficult to eliminate. Total coliforms and E-coli are used as indicators to measure the degree of pollution and sanitary quality of well water, because testing for all known pathogens is a complicated and expensive process. The main source of pathogens in drinking water is through recent contamination from

  • Human or animal waste
  • Improperly treated septic and sewage discharges
  • Leaching of animal manure
  • Stormwater runoff
  • Domestic animals or wildlife
