Abstract

The fungal spores elimination in drinking water by UV radiation *L. Tothova and ^E. Frankova ' Water Research Institute, Brath ^Department of Sanitary Engin Slovak University of Technology, Bratislava, Slovak Republic ' Water Research Institute, Bratislava, Slovak Republic ^Department of Sanitary Engineering, Faculty of Civil Engineering, Abstract UV radiation is effective on all microbial forms in water but lethal doses for every particular taxonomic group may be considerably different. Three species of Penicillium, Aspergillus and Cladosporium genera, 2 species of Alternaria and Fusarium and 1 species of Rhizopus and Paecilomyces genera were tested. Model waters were inoculated with spores of the mentioned monocultures. Three heterocultures: Aspergillus niger, Fusarium aquaductum and Paecilomyces varioti; Penicillium notatum, Aspergillus flavus, and Alternaria tenuis; Alternaria tennis, Cladosporium fulvum and Rhizopus stolonifer were tested as well. The final spor
