The fate of Cryptosporidium parvum in porous media

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Recently, several large waterborne outbreaks of human cryptosporidiosis have raised concern about the occurrence of the protozoal pathogen Cryptosporidium parvum, in drinking water. C. parvum has also been found in groundwater samples. Little is known about the transport of C. parvum in groundwater. This work characterizes the transport behaviour of C. parvum in saturated artificial sediments under strictly controlled conditions based on the principles of colloid filtration theory.
