Maintaining good standards of water hygiene and controlling levels of dangerous waterborne bacteria, including Pseudomonasand Legionella bacteria, which causes the potentially fatal condition Legionnaires’ disease, is an essential component in the successful management of any engineered water system. Dirty and poorly maintained water systems, old and dilapidated pipework, neglected water tanks and poorly managed cooling towers can lead to a significant deterioration in water quality standards. Importantly, such conditions can also create ideal environments for the growth and
I recently spent some time traveling around rural Tanzania, trying to better understand the way the communities, cities, and regions manage their water. As we departed from the last village, we handed out cookies to the children who had gathered to watch from a distance while we toured the farms.
