  • 5. …sources in drinking water Animal sources • Manure spread on land • Livestock in runoff or in streams • Improperly disposed farm animal wastes • Pet and bird wastes
  • 6. Coliform Test • Biological quality tested by total coliform test • Absence of coliform bacteria: safe drinking water • Presence of coliform bacteria: contaminated water
  • 7. Health Effects • Abdominal cramps and diarrhoea • Cellular function such as protein synthesis, mitochondrial function, cytoskeletal function, cell division, ion secretion, transcription and apoptosis.
  • 8. Categories of E. coli • enteropathogenic E.coli (EPEC) • entrohaemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC) • enterotoxigenic E. coli (ETEC) • enteroaggregative E. coli (EAEC) • enteroinvasive E. coli (EIEC) • diffusively adherent E. coli (DAEC)
