Abstract: Rainwater samples (54) were tested to study efficacy of H2S strip test by comparing with MPN (Most Probable Number) and other tests. Both H2S strip test and MPN agree in approx. 65-75% of cases. Disagreement is more pronounced at low bacterial content. Feasibility of local treatments of rainwater harvested for drinking purpose by exposure to sunlight is also studied.
