Practical Manual of Groundwater Microbiology addresses the microbiological events that can occur in groundwaters. These include the phenomena of biofouling, corrosivity, biodegradation, and shifts in hydraulic transmissivity that can be linked to microbial events. The book emphasizes the form in which microbial events occur (e.g., biofilm formation), activities become focused (e.g., at the REDOX fringe), and production characteristics are affected (e.g., production capacity declines). Practical approaches to the evaluation of these effects are introduced, including standard and novel methodologies. The book will be a useful reference guide for water well operators, hazardous waste site operators, consulting engineers, public health inspectors, microbiologists, and analytical chemists.As a general rule the temperature for incubating a test should be within a range from 5AdC below the observed temperature or 10AdC above. For warm waters such as heated swimming pools and whirlpools, an appropriate temperature would be 35 to 37AdC. The ... These are: (1) patterns of growth, (2) shifts in color resulting from growths or physico-chemical reactions and (3) generation of detectable gas.
