What are Coliform?
Coliform are a group of several types of bacteria from the same family which typically live and reproduce in the intestines of animals. Coliform bacteria can also be found in soil, surface water, and plants–anywhere animal feces may be present.
What is E. coli?
E. coli is an abbreviation for Escherichia coli, a genus and species of bacteria. E. coli is a member of the coliform group and is the predominant bacteria in the gut of warmblooded animals. The fact that it originates only in warm-blooded animals makes E. coli a better indicator than coliform of the potential for human diseases. A water test will give you results for both E. coli and total coliform. The presence of E. coli in water indicates
direct contamination with fecal matter and therefore, the presence of disease causing microorganism.
