E. Coli is a type of fecal coliform bacteria that is very harmful to human health. Generally, E. Coli bacteria is a sign that water has been contaminated with sewage or animal waste. Adams Well Drilling is highly-trained and experienced with detecting E. Coli and other strains of bacteria in water samples. We will identify and treat any contaminants in your water.
What Are the Risks of E. Coli Exposure?
When a human or animal digests E. Coli, the bacteria produces a toxin that can cause serious illness. The bacteria is most associated with abdominal cramps and digestive issues. While healthy adults typically recover within a week from this bout of illness, younger children and older individuals can experience a potentially fatal form of kidney failure. Of course, if E. Coli is in your water supply, you will be continually exposed to the bacteria and the illness will last much longer.
Adams Well Drilling offers tried-and-tested bacteria screening tests to identify any E. Coli in your system. If we find E. Coli or any other bacteria in your water, we utilize a highly-effective chlorination technique and other processional procedures to eliminate the infection.
