Abstract

Finished drinking water samples were collected at several drinking water plants whose treatment included flocculation, sand filtration and chlorination. Drinking water samples were also collected from the taps of private homes, hotels and community taps. Out of eight samples of finished drinking water leaving the plants studied, three were found to contain enteric viruses. Rotaviruses were detected in two samples and enterovirus in one. Two of the samples containing enteric viruses also contained greater than 100 coliforms/100 ml. Rotaviruses were isolated from three tapwater samples and enteroviruses from one. All the tapwater samples which contained enteric viruses had visible turbidity and also contained coliform bacteria.
