coliform bacteria in water

Water, the essence of life, demands our attention to ensure its quality and safety. In this blog post, we explore the realm of coliform bacteria, understanding their significance, potential sources of contamination, and, most importantly, how Chatfield's water treatment solutions can be your safeguard against these microbial intruders.

What Are Coliform Bacteria?

Coliform bacteria, found in the intestines of warm-blooded animals, serve as crucial indicators of potential contamination. While most strains are harmless, their presence in water suggests the need for closer scrutiny.

Significance in Water Quality

Coliform bacteria act as sentinels, signaling potential fecal contamination and prompting further investigation into water safety. The presence of Escherichia coli (E. coli) within the coliform group serves as a specific indicator of recent fecal contamination.

Sources of Contamination:

Contaminated surface water, agricultural runoff, and inadequately treated groundwater are common sources of coliform bacteria. The journey into our water supply often starts with human or animal waste.
