As increasing water shortages continue, water re-use is posing new challenges with treated wastewater becoming a significant source of non-potable water. Rapid detection strategies that target waterborne pathogens of concern to industry are gaining importance in the assessment of water quality. Recent government initiatives recognise the need for change, with regulations now aimed at reducing water consumption per person while increasing the reuse or recycling of wastewater (Anonymous, 2003; Anonymous, 2004). However, the safe management of recycled or re-use water is a pressing concern for non-traditional sources to be acceptable by the community.
