- Pathogenic bacteria excreted in human feces are found in low counts in wastewater and are known to be more sensitive to environmental conditions than Escherichia coli. The latter, excreted both by humans and warm-blooded animals, are used as an indicator of fecal wastes which may contain the pathogen, but the validity of this practice is often questioned. In wells recharged with chlorinated lake water, regrowth of coliform bacteria reached 105/100 ml when the water was re-pumped 7 to 28 days later. Very often, the more sensitive E. coli die away and are replaced by other coliforms, so that counts do not in themselves indicate a change in water quality.
