Morris, D. Galvin, S.; Boyle, F.; Hickey, P.; Mulligan, M.; Cormican, M. (2011). Enterococcus faecium of the vana genotype in rural drinking water, effluent, and the aqueous environment. Applied and Environmental Microbiology 78 (2), 596-598
Total enterococci and vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE) were enumerated in samples of effluent (n = 50) and water (n = 167) from a number of sources. VRE were detected in the outflow of a wastewater treatment plant and in a single rural drinking water supply, suggesting potential for transmission to humans through environmental contamination.
