A glass of waterMicrobiological, bacteria and viruses contamination of water has long been a concern to the public. From the 1920’s-1960’s, the bacillus which causes typhoid fever was considered a major problem in the water supply. Once it was eradicated, new microbes were present to take its place. In parts of the United States, the concern is increasing due to outbreaks of coliform bacteria, giardiasis, cryptosporidiosis, and hepatitis A. Some of these are bacteria, while others are viruses or protozoa. If you are on a public water supply system, and you are concerned about the possibility of bacteria and viruses contamination, contact your water municipality.

If you use a private water supply, have your water tested. Treatments do exist for microbial contamination, therefore, it is important to know what is present before the treatment begins.

In order to accurately determine what system is best for you, you will need an evaluation of your water.
