An early study concluded that "there is no preventative or retarding effect on alum floc formation with low raw water temperatures."
Part 4: Microbiologically-Mediated Deterioration in Surface Water Supplies
There are approximately 73,000 cases of E. coli annually in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. However, this infection is not just domestic but on a global scale.
Escherichia coli, a.k.a. E. coli. A terrible, but familiar word to the public suggests sewage or animal waste contamination. E.

In today's laboratory environment, it is essential that pure water is available for numerous applications.
People must recognize that drinking water contamination is a serious problem. It is a problem that is constantly being addressed by government officials, public interest groups and the scientific community.
