Good quality water should be free from pathogens. Pathogenic organisms are examples of biological contaminants. Various types include: bacteria, viruses and parasites. Contaminated water from these organisms can harm human health either through direct ingestion, use for food preparation, use in personal hygiene and/or leisure, agriculture and industry. Some of the diseases that can be transmitted by contact with this contaminated water are: leptospirosis, tuberculosis, malaria and schistosomiasis. In order to control the proliferation of these organisms and avoid risk of contamination, tests must be carried out in order to identify their presence.
- People affected by bacterial infection or those with low immunity
- People affected by faecal (animal or human) contamination
- Water suspected of legionella contamination
- Town Or City Water Users
- Health Professionals
