Water microbiology is concerned with the microorganisms that live in the water, or those that can be transported from one habitat to another by water. The improvement of pathogen detection methodology is an important issue for the efficient prevention of waterborne outbreaks in the populations worldwide. This book describes the direct detection of pathogens by molecular biologic techniques., i.e techniques based on the analysis of the nucleic acid content (DNA and RNA) of pathogens. The biosensor technology is also reviewed, focusing on their potential application for pathogen detection in water environments. Furthermore, this book presents a review on the aerobic and anaerobic processes (nutrients removal) used in the microbiological treatment of domestic wastewater and some new improvements on the bioremediation techniques. Also discussed is the biodiversity of microorganisms involved in these processes and the molecular tools that are applied to these studies. Other chapters examine both the magnitude and variety of microbes and microbial products administered in dental water, a discussion of the probable impacts of global climate change on waterborne parasitic infections, and the effects of the growth of aquaculture production systems on the quality of water and food produced.

Detection of Pathogens in Water Using Micro and Nano-Technology aims to promote the uptake of nanotechnological approaches by developing an integrated cost-effective nanobiological sensor for detection of bioterrorism and environmental assays. The book integrates DNA hybridisation sensors with micro-fluidics and signal conditioning/processing on both silicon and polymer substrates avoiding the use of external apparatus for fluid handling, electrical signal generation and processing, based on DNA hybridisation. A sensory breakthrough is achieved trough two complementary technological solutions: Measurements based on electrical (capacitive) signals. If hybridisation occurs between target and probe the detected change can be functionalised. Detection through UV light absorption. Based on the recognition of different UV absorptions induced by DNA hybridisation.

Over the past 15 years, the use of modern molecular biological approaches has radically advanced our understanding of nitrification processes. With chapters contributed by leading experts in the field, Nitrification fully reviews all the latest research findings on microbes involved in conventional aerobic nitrification, anaerobic ammonia oxidation, and related processes.
The book begins with an overview of the current state of the field. Next, the four principal groups of nitrifying microbes are examined in separate sections, covering conventional aerobic bacterial ammonia oxidizers,recently discovered aerobic archaeal ammonia oxidizers,anaerobic ammonia-oxidizing planctomycetes, and nitriteoxidizing bacteria. Within each section, readers can gather current information on the ecology, phylogeny, biochemistry,molecular biology, and genomics of each group of microbes.
The authors also discuss the latest industrial applications of nitrification and anammox processes. The final section of the book explores the ecology of nitrification in marine, freshwater, soil, and wastewater environments. By reviewing all aspects of nitrification in one place, Nitrification introduces novices to the field and brings experienced researchers up to date with all the latest perspectives. Extensive references at the end of each chapter guide readers to the field’s growing body of primary research, making this book the ideal starting point for any investigation of nitrifying microbes.

Microbial Ecology of Activated Sludge

Pages: 688 • Hardback
Microbial Ecology of Activated Sludge, written for both microbiologists and engineers, critically reviews our current understanding of the microbiology of activated sludge, the most commonly used process for treating both domestic and industrial wastes. The contributors are all internationally recognized as leading research workers in activated sludge microbiology, and all have made valuable contributions to our present understanding of the process. The book pays particular attention to how the application of molecular methods has changed our perceptions of the identity of the filamentous bacteria causing the operational disorders of bulking and foaming, and the bacteria responsible for nitrification and denitrification and phosphorus accumulation in nutrient removal processes. Special attention is given to how it is now becoming possible to relate the composition of the community of microbes present in activated sludge, and the in situ function of individual populations there, and how such information might be used to manage and control these systems better. Detailed descriptions of some of these molecular methods are provided to allow newcomers to this field of study an opportunity to apply them in their research. Comprehensive descriptions of organisms of interest and importance are also given, together with high quality photos of activated sludge microbes.
Activated sludge processes have been used globally for nearly 100 years, and yet we still know very little of how they work. In the past 15 years the advent of molecular culture independent methods of study have provided tools enabling microbiologists to understand which organisms are present in activated sludge, and critically, what they might be doing there. Microbial Ecology of Activated Sludge will be the first book available to deal comprehensively with the very exciting new information from applying these methods, and their impact on how we now view microbiologically mediated processes taking place there. As such it will be essential reading for microbial ecologists, environmental biotechnologists and engineers involved in designing and managing these plants. It will also be suitable for postgraduate students working in this field.
Treatment of Micropollutants in Water and Wastewater

Over the last few years there has been a growing concern over the increasing concentration of micropollutants originating from a great variety of sources including pharmaceutical, chemical engineering and personal care product industries in rivers, lakes, soil and groundwater. As most of the micropollutants are polar and persistent compounds, they are only partially or not at all removed from wastewater and thus can enter the environment posing a great risk to the biota. It is hypothesized that wastewater is one of the most important point sources for micropollutants.
This book will give a comprehensive overview of modern analytical methods and will summarize novel single and hybrid methods to remove continuously emerging contaminants - micropollutants from the aqueous phase. New trends (e.g. sensor technology, nanotechnology and hybrid treatment technologies) will be described in detail. The book is very timely because the new techniques are still in the development phase and have to be realized not only in the laboratory but also on a larger scale. The content of the book is divided into chapters that present current descriptive and analytical methods that are available to detect and measure micropollutants together with detailed information on various chemical, biological and physicochemical methods that have evolved over the last few decades.
Treatment of Micropollutants in Water and Wastewater will also enable readers to make well informed choices through providing an understanding of why and how micropollutants must be removed from water sources, and what are the most appropriate and available techniques for providing a cost and technologically effective and sustainable solutions for reaching the goal of micropollutant-free water and wastewater.
The book will be suitable for water and wastewater professionals as well for students and researchers in civil engineering, environmental engineering and process engineering fields.
Stochastic Modelling of Drinking Water Treatment in Quantitative Microbial Risk Assessment

Pages: 196 • Paperback
Safe drinking water is a basic need for all human beings. Preventing microbial contamination of drinking water is of primary concern since endemic illness and outbreaks of infectious diseases can have significant social and economic consequences. Confirming absence of indicators of faecal contamination by water analysis only provides a limited verification of safety. By measuring pathogenic organisms in source water and modelling their reduction by treatment, a higher level of drinking water safety can be verified. This book provides stochastic methods to determine reduction of pathogenic microorganisms by drinking water treatment. These can be used to assess the level and variability of drinking water safety while taking uncertainty into account. The results can support decisions by risk managers about treatment design, operation, monitoring, and adaptation. Examples illustrate how the methods can be used in water safety plans to improve and secure production of safe drinking water.
Introduction and goal of the study; A stochastic pathogen reduction model for full-scale treatment; How can the UK statutory Cryptosporidium monitoring be used for quantitative risk assessment of Cryptosporidium in drinking water?; Inactivation of Escherichia coli by ozone under bench-scale plug flow and full-scale hydraulic conditions; Improved methods for modelling drinking water treatment in quantitative microbial risk assessment; a case study of Campylobacter reduction by filtration and ozonation; On the variability and uncertainty in quantitative microbial risk assessment of drinking water; Practical applications of quantitative microbial risk assessment for water safety plans; General discussion

Ever since the recognition of the important role of water in the transmission of pathogenic micro-organisms in the 19th century, microbiological safety of drinking water has been a major research issue for microbiologists in the drinking water industry.
The main objective of this book is to develop a general strategy to assess elimination capacity of water treatment processes for pathogens.
It investigates:
* The potential use of faecal indicators Coli44, (including E. Coli) and SSRC, (including C. perfringens) as process indicators to assess pathogen elimination in full-scale water treatment plants.
* The value of comparative challenge tests with pre-cultured organisms for the assessment of elimination capacity of full-scale processes, to study the effect of process conditions and to validate the use of process indicators.
* The use of literature data to assess elimination capacity of water treatment processes for pathogens and the effect of process conditions on this.
Microbiologically safe drinking water; Indicator bacteria concentrations in water treatment and assessment of elimination capacity; Enumeration of faecal indicator bacteria in large water volumes using on site membrane filtration to assess water treatment efficiency; Quantitative assessment of the removal of indicator bacteria in full-scale treatment plants; Spores of sulphite-reducing clostridia (SSRC) as surrogate for verification inactivation capacity of full-scale ozonation for Cryptosporidium; Inactivation credit of UV-radiation for viruses, bacteria and protozoan oocysts: a review; Elimination of viruses, bacteria and protozoan oocysts by slow sand filtration; Removal and fate of Cryptosporidium parvum, Clostridium perfringens and Stephanodiscus hamtzschii in slow sand filters; Transport of phage MS2, Escherichia coli, Clostridium perfringens, Cryptosporidium parvum, and Giardia intestinalis in a gravel and a sandy soil; General discussion
