A coliform bacterium is a kind of bacteria found in the stomach-intestinal tract of soil plants and warm-blooded animals. This group of bacteria is usually a good indicator of contamination of some intestinal parasites and pathogens in the water. The sources of contamination of these bacteria are a wide range of sewage plants, microbial tanks, animal wastes. Pets are also able to contribute to this pollution. Most coliform bacteria directly colonize natural water resources as a mixture of human and animal wastes or wastewater.
