  • Bacteria Inspection:
    Sewage Backup Why Test?

    Damage from flood water containing sewage and feces is a very common problem encountered
    by home owners and building managers. Sewage wastewater, if it contains fecal waste, may be contaminated with a wide variety of microbes, including viruses, parasites, bacteria, and yeasts. Many of these are
    pathogenic to humans. These microbes must be and the environment must be disinfected with appropriate biocides.
    In the event of sewage water contamination, cleanup, disinfection and testing are necessary to
    ensure that the cleanup and disinfection are successful and the living environment is free of
    contamination from sewage associated microbes.
    Sewage backup could lead to sewage contamination of the occupied spaces. Exposure to sewage contamination increases the risk of contracting diseases of the digestive system and other related illnesses. Potential disease causing organisms in sewage contamination include Escherichia coli, Salmonella, and Shigella.
    Sources of sewage contamination may include raw sewage backup, severe flooding and leaking sewer lines or septic tanks.

    Elite Environmental Consulting will assess the affected work area, take moisture readings and collect swab samples to determine the potential health risks from sewage contamination. Sampling after cleanup is recommended to determine if the cleanup was successful.

    Bacteria clearance testing must be conducted once remediation has been completed to insure a proper cleaning has been done.
    Fecal Coliforms

    The term fecal colifor is rather misleading since not all bacteria found in this group are of fecal origin. Fecal coliforms include bacteria such as E. coli, Klebsiella, Enterobacter, and Citrobacter. With the exception of E. coli, these bacteria could also be associated with plants.
    Escherichia coli (E. coli)

    As mentioned above the E. coli belong to the fecal coliform group. Presence of E. coli is a reliable indication of fecal or sewage contamination. However, E. coli has also been isolated from soil suggesting that it may not be 100% reliable indicator of fecal or sewage contamination.
