About this book

This comprehensive text describes the diseases associated with water, their causative agents and the ways in which they gain access to water systems. It also details the methods for detecting and identifying waterborne microorganisms, the ways in which they are removed from water, and the risks they present to water users. Microbiology of Waterborne Diseases will serve as an indispensable reference for public health microbiologists, water utility scientists, research water pollution microbiologists environmental health officers, consultants in communicable disease control and microbial water pollution students.

Reviews of the first edition:

" [...] highly recommended for academic, medical, and special libraries with relevant programs. The text is well-written and highly understandable, and presents an excellent summary of waterborne pathogens and their relevance to drinking water."
- E-STREAMS (January 2005)

"This multi-author book provides current knowledge on drinking water pathogens highlighting their microbiology, clinical features, survival in the environment and risk assessment [...] This book will serve as a reference material for public health microbiologists, water utility scientists, water pollution research microbiologists, environmental health officers, consultants in communicable disease control, and microbial water pollution students"
