Water is the most important substance on earth, without which no living organism can exist and biological, chemical reactions and technological processes cannot occur. A connection between the incidence of the population and the nature of water consumption has long been noted.
The main source of bacterial contamination of water bodies is domestic water and some industrial wastewater. Wastewater from urban sewers contains billions of microbial cells in 1 ml. The microflora of domestic wastewater consists mainly of saprophytic microorganisms released from the intestines of humans and animals, as well as microbes washed away from the human body and surrounding objects. One person excrets several trillions of microorganisms with feces per day, including: bacteria of the Escherichia coli group, enterococci, spore aerobic and anaerobic coli, etc.
Constantly found in water: Ps. fluorescens, Bact. aquatilis communis, Micr. candicans, micr. roseus, Sarcina lutea, Torula rosea; less commonly, spore-forming bacteria in you. cereus and others. In clean water, up to 80% of all aerobic saprophytic microbes account for coccal forms, 20% are rod-shaped.
The aim of our work was: the study of the microflora of water of various sources of water supply in the city of Troitsk.
The objective of the work is to conduct physicochemical and microbiological analysis of water of various sources of water supply in the city of Troitsk.
We conducted an opinion poll in oral form. 100 people were interviewed. As a result, the following data were obtained: a large part of the population of the city of Troitsk is not satisfied with the quality of tap water, but uses it because it is available and it is convenient than taking water in a well or in a well. Despite this, many people do not risk using it without boiling it. In the spring, when the quality of the source water drops, many people take water from springs and wells.
We selected 3 samples of drinking water from various sources of water supply in the city of Troitsk:
1- well water from Tokarevka;
2- well water from the settlement of G oncharka;
3- tap water.
Samples were selected according to the requirements of GOST.
We conducted chemical-toxicological studies of water samples on the main standardized quality indicators. Table 1 shows the results.
The content of calcium and chlorides does not exceed the MPC. Determination of the total content of calcium and magnesium showed that water is mostly hard. Except for sample No. 2. We also conducted a sanitary-microbiological assessment of water quality for:
1. Determination of the total number of microorganisms (KMAFAnM).
2. Determination of common and thermotolerant coliform bacteria by the titration method.
3. Determination of spore sulfite-reducing clostridia by direct inoculation.
The method for determining KMAFAnM is based on the ability of mesophilic aerobic and
facultatively anaerobic microorganisms grow on nutrient agar at a temperature of 37 ° C for 24 hours, with the formation of visible colonies with an increase of 2 times.
Result sample - 14 CFU in 1 ml of test water;
2. sample - more than 300 CFU in 1 ml of test water;
3. sample - lack of growth in 1 ml of water.
The method for determination of common and thermo-tolerant coliform bacteria by the titration method is based on the accumulation of bacteria after sowing a specified volume of water in a liquid nutrient medium, followed by reseeding on a selective solid nutrient medium with lactose and identification of colonies by cultural and biochemical tests.

The presence of gas, sediment, turbidity in the accumulation medium (Kessler) was revealed in all samples of the studied water. On the Endo medium, colonies of a dark red color with metallic luster, typical for lactose-positive bacteria, convex with a red center (100 ml).
The method for determination of spore sulfite-reducing clostridia by direct inoculation is based on inoculation of the established volume of water into test tubes with iron-sulfite agar, incubation of inoculations at a temperature of 44 ° C for 24 hours and counting of black colonies.
In all samples of the studied water, no spores of sulfite-reducing clostridia were found (in 20 ml of water).
For water disinfection apply:
1 Chlorination
2 Boiling
3 UV exposure
4 Iodine treatment
5 Ozonation of water
6 Silver treatment
Chlorination is the most common way to disinfect drinking water. Chlorine inhibits microbial enzyme systems that catalyze redox processes. Chlorination is also used for disinfecting water in centralized water supply systems for epidemiological indications, as well as for disinfecting wastewater, swimming pool water, bleaching, deferrization of industrial waters, etc. The consequences of excessive chlorination are: oncological and skin diseases; may provoke a miscarriage in pregnant women; damage to the city communications system.
Another common method is boiling. Water becomes softer, as temporary hardness precipitates, some volatile organic substances evaporate. For reliable disinfection, it is recommended to boil water for 15-20 minutes. The causative agents of most serious diseases can not withstand high temperatures (the exception is the controversy of some pathogens).
Like us, our planet has a circulatory system. Earth’s blood is water, and blood vessels are rivers, streams, streams and lakes. And this is not just a comparison, an artistic metaphor. Water on Earth plays the same role as blood in the human body, and as scientists have recently noticed, the structure of the river network is very similar to the structure of the human circulatory system. passing from soil to plants, from plants to the atmosphere, flowing along rivers from continents to oceans and coming back with air currents, connecting various components of nature with each other, turning them into a single geographical system. Water does not just pass from one natural component to another. Like blood, it carries with it a huge amount of chemicals, exporting them from the soil to plants, from land to lakes and oceans, from the atmosphere to the earth.
Based on the data collected by us, it was concluded that not a single water sample meets safety indicators: it is hard (except for sample No. 2), in all samples growth of E. coli was detected, which is not allowed in 100 ml of water. Therefore, drinking water from a tap without additional purification and boiling is impossible.

Microflora of water of various sources of water supply in Troitsk

  1. WATER HYGIENE AND SANITARY PROTECTION OF WATER SUPPLIES
    Objects of state sanitary supervision - open water bodies and underground water sources, water intake facilities and sanitary protection zones, hydraulic structures, WATER & water and sewage with sewage treatment plants
  2. Hygienic requirements for the installation and operation of water from surface water sources. Water Quality Improvement Methods
    Currently, 84% of the total amount of water supplied to cities and towns is taken from surface water bodies. Reliable and uninterrupted operation of the drinking water supply system largely depends on the choice of the location of the water intake. It is important to consider hydrological, sanitary and technical and economic conditions, among which the main, determining, factor is sanitary.
  3. Methods for improving the quality of drinking water. Disinfection of drinking water at centralized water supply and in the field
    There are many methods to improve water quality, and they allow you to free water from dangerous microorganisms, suspended particles, humic compounds, from excess salts, toxic and radioactive substances and odorous gases. The main goal of water purification is to protect the consumer from pathogenic organisms and impurities that can be dangerous to human health or have unpleasant properties (color, smell, taste
  4. Water sources
    The total volume of water on the globe is about 1.5 billion km3. At the same time, 93.96% of the water is concentrated in the seas and oceans. Fresh water accounts for less than 6% of available water resources. It is believed that only 0.2-0.3% of all water on Earth can be used for drinking purposes. One of the current problems is the shortage of drinking water. This problem arose due to population growth.
  5. Hygienic characteristics of water sources
    Sources of water for a centralized drinking water supply system can serve as fresh surface water bodies (rivers, lakes, reservoirs, canals, etc.), and groundwater (interstratal - pressure and non-pressure). In conditions of decentralized (local) water supply, underground (ground) water, as well as springs, are more often used. In the arid zone in the absence of others
  6. Hygiene of water and water supply in populated areas
    The central issue in this section of communal hygiene is the medical, scientifically based conclusion on the degree of danger or safety of water for the health of people living in settlements, based on hygienic standards for water quality, taking into account the long-term consequences of its prolonged use. Hygienic requirements for water quality indicators depend on the purpose of the water,
  7. The choice of source for drinking water
    In accordance with the requirements of GOST 2761-84 “Sources of centralized drinking water supply. Hygienic, technical requirements and selection rules ”when choosing a source, it is recommended to give preference to reliably protected from external (surface) pollution (interstratal pressure water). In the absence or impossibility of using such water sources, it is recommended
  8. Microflora of water
    Water is the natural habitat of many microbes. Most microbes come from the soil. The number of microbes in 1 ml of water depends on the presence of nutrients in it. The stronger the water is polluted with organic residues, the more microbes in it. The most frequent are the waters of deep artesian wells, as well as spring waters. Usually they do not contain germs. Especially rich
  9. Hygienic characteristics of water sources
    There are three types of origin and localization of water: underground, surface and atmospheric. Groundwater is formed from atmospheric precipitation passing through the soil and lingering on waterproof layers of clay or granite (Fig. 2.2). According to the occurrence conditions, there are distinguished ground, interstratal pressureless and interstratal pressure (artesian) waters. Groundwater accumulates on
  10. Water supply local and central. Sanitary protection of water sources. Water purification and disinfection
    Local water supply is wells, mine and tubular. Mine wells have a wooden blockhouse or concrete rings, the length does not exceed 20 meters, the walls rise above the ground level of 0.6-0.8 meters, there must be a roof or canopy around the aboveground part of the well - a waterproof lock. There should also be a permanent bucket, and around the well at a distance of at least 25 meters should not
  11. Hygienic requirements for the arrangement and operation of the head water supply facilities from underground water sources
    Groundwater abstraction consists of water intake structures, water lifting devices within individual water intakes or the central pumping station I lift and pipelines that connect the water intake structures to a pumping station, water pipes or a clean water tank (collection tank). Water intake from inter-reservoir underground sources is carried out through artesian, or

  13. The chemical composition of water. Water pollution: physical, chemical, bacteriological. Self-cleaning ability of water sources
    The chemical composition of water. In nature, water almost always contains more or less mineral salts dissolved in it. The degree and mineral composition of water is determined by the nature of the soil or soils adjacent to aquifers or surface water sources. The amount of mineral salts contained in the water is expressed in mg / L. Organic matter Of these, the most important
  14. The composition of the microflora of the large intestine. The functions of the microflora of the large intestine
    A detailed composition of the intestinal microflora is given in Appendix 1. The entire intestinal microflora is divided into: - obligate (main microflora); - optional part (conditionally pathogenic and saprophytic microflora); Obligatory microflora. Bifidobacteria are the most significant representatives of obligate bacteria in the intestines of children and adults. These are anaerobes, they do not form a dispute and
  15. Sanitary and epidemiological requirements for water supply of food facilities
    Water supply of food facilities can be carried out by various systems. The local water supply system is the construction of mine and tubular wells, mainly in rural areas. The sources of water for this system are groundwater, which is used without prior treatment. The hygienic characteristics of the wells depend on the depth of the aquifer and protection measures
  16. Water supply systems
    Water supply in modern urban and rural settlements should ensure the quality and quantity of water supplied in accordance with established hygienic standards, maintain a high level of public health, eliminating the danger of the spread of waterborne diseases. There are two water supply systems: local and centralized. At local
  17. Rural water supply
    When choosing a source of centralized water supply, preference is given to groundwater. When artesian waters are not enough or they cannot be used in terms of quality, water pipelines from open reservoirs (rivers, lakes, reservoirs), irrigation and watering canals are arranged. The water intake site is located above the settlement along the river (canal), it should be
  18. Use in water supply
    In recent decades, polymeric materials have been widely used in sanitary engineering, in particular as substitutes for metal in the production of pipes. The advantage of plastic pipes is their low cost, and most importantly, they do not corrode and break when water freezes in them. The danger of using plastics in water supply is related to their ability to excrete
  19. Hygienic requirements for centralized drinking water supply in populated areas
    Centralized drinking water supply is a set of measures and facilities to provide settlements with benign drinking water in sufficient quantities, which include 4 mechanized intake of water from sources, its purification, disinfection and, if necessary, special treatment and delivery to consumers with a network of water pipes.
