Tackling Enterococci Contamination: Important Changes to Drinking Water Regulations.

Is there feacal contamination in your drinking water?

Enterococci are a family of bacteria present in nature, with some species of the enterococci family being dangerous to humans.

In drinking water, enterococci presence indicates the presence of environmental contamination (specifically faecal contamination as naturally these bacteria reside in the gut microbiome of humans and animals) which can lead to dangerous clinical manifestations.

Research has shown that these bacteria cause enterococcal infections that range in severity from urinary tract infections (UTIs), to bloodstream infections that can develop into more severe infections in the heart (endocarditis) and lining of the brain tissue (meningitis). 

For the safety of your family, monitoring for enterococci helps identify potential risks to your family’s health and enables water suppliers to take appropriate action to address any potential risks to your safety. 

For families with children, pregnant or nursing individuals, elderly household members, those with weakened immune systems, or even new homeowners, it’s especially crucial to ensure the safety of your drinking water.
