For instance, Park and coauthor (1992) conducted a study to compare thermotolerant
Campylobacter in samples obtained from outdoor farmers markets and supermarkets.
coli, a thermotolerant
coliform in fish, is related to their hygienic-sanitary quality, since this bacteria indicates fecal contamination (Dutta et al., 2015).
coliforms are not a good surrogate for Campylobacter spp.
The analyses performed were: pH and electrical conductivity determined by potentiometric method; turbidity determined by the nephelometric method; total dissolved solids determined by gravimetric; total hardness determined by titration method; total iron and nitrate determined by spectrophotometry and thermotolerant
coliforms determined by technique of filter membrane.
coliforms and Escherichia coli values at the inlet and outlet along with their removal efficiencies are shown in Fig.

Campylobacter species by fluorescence in situ hybridization.
The wastewater analysis presented on averages: electrical conductivity = 2.1 dS [m.sup.-1]; pH = 7.2; total hardness = 273.4 mg CaC[O.sub.3] [L.sup.-1]; [Ca.sup.2+] = 74.9 mg [L.sup.-1]; [Mg.sup.2+] = 21.0 mg [L.sup.-1]; [Na.sup.+] = 133.1 mg [L.sup.-1]; [K.sup.+] = 43.6 mg [L.sup.-1]; total N = 126.0 mg [L.sup.-1]; total P = 13.7 mg [L.sup.-1]; S = 5.3 mg [L.sup.-1]; Mn = 1.3 mg [L.sup.-1]; Fe = 9.2 mg [L.sup.-1]; chemical oxygen demand = 154.0 mg of [O.sub.2] [L.sup.-1]; biological oxygen demand = 39.0 mg of [O.sub.2] [L.sup.-1]; dissolved [O.sub.2] = 46.0%; total coliforms = 2.2 x [10.sup.7] (most probable number)/100 mL; thermotolerant
coliforms = 1.4 x [10.sup.7] (most probable number)/100 m[L.sup.-1] (APHA, 2012).
Water quality was evaluated based on pH, dissolved oxygen (DO), total dissolved solids (TDS), total suspended solids (TSS), color, turbidity, biochemical oxygen demand ([BOD.sub.5]), ammonia nitrogen (N[H.sub.4]), nitrate (N[O.sub.3]), nitrites (N[O.sub.2]), total dissolved phosphorus (P), and thermotolerant
According to this resolution, three different groups of indicator organisms can be used: thermotolerant
coliforms (TtC), enterococci and Escherichia coli.
