Abstract
Animals that have been reported in distribution systems and of special interest to the water works operator, and in certain instances to the consumer, are nematodes (roundworms), mollusks (snails and clams) midge larvae (bloodworms), and crustacea (copepods and water fleas). Other animals causing occasional nuisances in distribution systems are: protozoa, sponges, rotifers, bryozoans, segmented worms, and aquatic sow bugs (water lice), to name some examples. The report quickly reviews this problem.
