New UI study shows days of stagnant water can collect millions of bacteria

Researchers at the University of Illinois developed a model to show how millions of bacteria can grow in plumbing systems in a span of just a few days. “We actually can develop a model to know why the bacteria is growing in the water and where the bacteria is coming from,” said civil and environmental …

Model to show how bacteria grow in plumbing systems

The findings are published in Nature’s ISME Journal: Multidisciplinary Journal of Microbial Ecology. Fresh tap water is teeming with harmless microbial life, and water that sits for a few days inside pipes can contain millions of bacteria. Although incidents of waterborne infections resulting from indoor plumbing are rare, the new model may help public health authorities assess drinking-water quality. “Previous studies have relied on reproducing the conditions of a stagnant plumbing system within a lab setting,” said co-author and civil and environmental engineering professor Wen-Tso Liu . “W…

Researchers develop model to show how bacteria grow in plumbing systems

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. — Bacteria in tap water can multiply when a faucet isn’t used for a few days, such as when a house is vacant over a week’s vacation, a new study from University of Illinois engineers found. The study suggests a new method to show how microbial communities, including those responsible for illnesses like Legionnaires’ disease, may assemble inside the plumbing systems of homes and public buildings. The findings are published in Nature’s ISME Journal: Multidisciplinary Journal of Microbial Ecology. Fresh tap water is teeming with harmless microbial life, and water that sits for a…
