The coliform group of bacteria is the principal indicator of suitability of water for domestic, industrial or other uses. The coliform group density has been established as a criterion of the degree of pollution and thus of sanitary quality. Faecal Streptococci and Enterococci are also indicators of faecal pollution. Where it is claimed that drinking water has been processed for safety, the finding of such organism demonstrates a failure of the process. It is a valuable bacterial indicator for determining the extent of fecal contamination of recreational surface waters or drinking water. Bromocresol Purple Broth with Dextrose is used for the identification of Escherichia coli and coliforms from water. It is used for enrichment and determining the titre of coliforms in the bacteriological analysis of drinking water.
