Microbial contamination of groundwater is responsible for large outbreaks of waterborne disease. The most important pathogens that may enter groundwater are viruses and bacteria. Environmental factars affecting their survival and migration in groundwater have only recently come under study and have proven to be highly complex. Only by understanding these factors will it be possible to control or prevent microbial contarnination of groundwater.
