E. Coli: A Cause For Concern
Escherichia coli, otherwise known as E. Coli, is excreted from the intestines of humans and animals. This coliform bacteria can also be found in soil, often as a result of agricultural runoff, and can be transmitted through contaminated water. If consumed, it can cause intestinal infection with a range of symptoms from diarrhea, abdominal pain, and fever, to urinary tract infections and pneumonia. The elderly and young children are particularly susceptible to the ill-effects of this bacterial contamination.
Testing For Contaminants
The presence of fecal coliforms in your water can determine if your water is suitable for consumption. Coliform bacteria testing is the ideal indicator for revealing the quality of various water sources. If a test reveals a high concentration of coliform bacteria it indicates the presence of other disease-causing bacteria. From here, Benchmark Environmental Engineering will develop a remediation plan to safely and effectively address the problem so potable water can be restored.
Reasons For Water Quality Testing
Wherever human or animal fecal matter can come into contact with the environment, there exists a chance that water contamination could occur.
