Free-living protozoa in drinking water


“The challenge to deliver high quality drinking water is refl ected in the Delft Cluster project Quality 21, whose objective is to deliver top quality drinking water. Via this project, we aim to ensure good drinking water in the 21st century, as well as to keep or improve consumers’ trust in drinking water from the tap. One spearhead of the Q21 project is to inhibit the growth of Legionella pneumophila in drinking water treatment systems, the distribution infrastructure, and warm water installations. The aim of this research is to provide data on interactions in microbial communities that are present as biofilms in drinking water systems, in relation to the presence of free-living protozoa that serve as a host for Legionella pneumophila.”
