Water quality on cattle farms in the northwest Croatia

Abstract

In this study, quality of well water used for cattle watering on farms in the northwest Croatia was investigated. The following microbiological parameters were analysed: total coliforms, Escherichia coli, intestinal enterococci, the number of microorganism colonies at 37 ° C and 22 ° C, Clostridium perfringens and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Physico-chemical analysis included following parameters: colour, taste, odour, pH, chlorides, sulphates, nitrites, nitrates, sodium, potassium, ammonium, free chlorine, iron and the consumption of KMnO4. Among 34 samples analysed, 79.4% were microbiologically, 61.8% were chemically and 94.1% of the samples were in total unsuitable according to the Croatian water quality regulations (OJ 125/2013, 141/2013, 128/2015)
