    Article, Communication - En anglais

    IAWQ international symposium on health-related water microbiology. Mallorca (ESP), 1996/10/06.

    An evaluation of the sanitary quality of the sand beaches of Azores archipelago was undertaken May-October 1994 and 1995.

    The samples were analysed for total and faecal coliforms, faecal enterococci, Clostridium, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and fungi (keratinolytic, yeasts, potential pathogenic and allergic and/or environmental saprophytes).

    The results were evaluated according to a « Proposal Guideline for the Microbiological Quality of Sand ».

    The data showed good or satisfactory sanitary quality of the sand beaches.

    The result indicated that the faecal enterococci can be a better indicator organism than the total and faecal coliforms.

    The fungi could be used as indicator organisms.

    The application of the « Proposal » should complete the criteria used in the « Blue Flag » distinction for high environmental quality beaches.
