A study on the removal efficiency of drinking water treatment processes for viruses and protozoa (Cryptosporidium/Giardia). The description is based on the best available Dutch and, if data on the Dutch situation are absent, international research data. The approach is valid for well-designed and operated treatment processes. The influence of process parameters and the nature of the micro-organisms and source water quality is described quantitatively (where possible) or qualitatively.
