Drinking Water Microbiology Progress and Recent Developments

The microbiology of drinking water remains an important worldwide concern despite modem progress in science and engineering. Countries that are more technologically advanced have experienced a significant reduction in water­ borne morbidity within the last 100 years: This reduction has been achieved...
