The bacterial flora of the Charlottesville and University of Virginia water supply
Skeen, Lyman Dixon, Jr, Department of Biology, University of Virginia
An investigation of the Charlottesville and the University of Virginia water supply. This investigation was undertaken with the following objects:
I. A determination of the number of bacteria present, as indicated by samples taken at a number of points in the water system, using nutrient gelatin and agar under like conditions.
II. Observations as to the effects of ordinary seasonal changes and those of marked fluctuating weather upon the number of bacteria present.
III. A study of the most important characteristics of bacteria present in the water supply and the detection of those, if any, whose presence should cause doubts as to its safety.
IV. A consideration of the water supply in question from a sanitary standpoint in the light of the facts determined.
