High bacterial populations in potable water distribution systems, sometimes referred to as events or blooms, have troubled utilities because of their possible implications for the hygienic safety and taste and odor of their product. Before considering the contribution of biofilm accumulation to these high bacterial populations in distribution systems, some terminology must be clarified with regard to drinking water bacteriology.
