Abstract

Antibiotic resistant and potentially pathogenic bacteria have been isolated from healthy humans, food animals and the environment. This has highlighted the potential of the environment to play a role in the transmission of such organisms
A substantial increase in numbers of faecal indicator bacteria (including enterococci) is observed in water samples during heavy rainfall events. This increase in numbers could be as high as 100-fold compared to low-flow conditions Here we describe the phenotypic and molecular characterization of enterococci during both low-flow conditions and high-flow conditions, with emphasis on E. faecium
