Description
Medical Reference Publication

Excerpt
Nuisance organisms constitute a morphologically and physiologically diverse group, including planktonic and benthic cyanobacteria (blue-green algae), actinomycetes, iron, manganese, and sulfur bacteria, crustacea, and protozoa. These organisms cause problems when the conditions in reservoirs or distribution systems are such as to support their growth. Thus organic matter in drinking- water supports the growth of bacteria and fungi, which in turn will help to maintain populations of protozoa and crustacea. Many invertebrate animals can feed on bacteria, fungi, and protozoa. The content of organic compounds in treated water should therefore ideally be so low as to inhibit the growth of bacteria and to prevent that of other organisms during distribution.
