Description:

Data Set

Purpose/Objective:

The data in this report describes the persistence of Escherichia coli on corroded iron surfaces in chlorinated and chloraminated drinking water. The data were generated for a research project aimed at developing a model for pathogen attachment and detachment in drinking water distribution system infrastructure. Validation of attachment/detachment models requires experimental data. It was found that intervals were too long to draw conclusions about the model’s representation of the data. It was determined that controlled experiments would be performed under conditions similar to Szabo et al. (2006, 2007), but with shorter intervals.
