I've got a few questions that I was hoping someone might be able to help me with.
1. Do faecal coliforms exist naturally in water ways or are they only present when warm blooded animal excretions are present?

2. Does anyone know the journal no. for the article in Nature or New Scientist that talked about the survival characteristics of fc in waterways?

3.. Does anyone know how prevalent fc are in the air, from human breath (what I'm trying to determine is the viability of some new fc filtration equipment that doesn't have a lids)?

Regards DEan
