"I. Preliminary investigations. This includes the securing of 139 water samples from water sources in the Rolla Quadrangle, and inoculating 1cc samples from these into Dunham's Lactose tubes and thereby getting lactose gas production checks on the field samples. II. Confirmatory tests. This consisted in the isolation of lactose fermenters on Eosin-Methylene Blue Agar and checking of the cultures back through the lactose and then through dulcitel and saccharose so as to complete Jackson's Classification. 106 cultures were classified in this manner. III. Running through a complete set of tests of pure cultures, so as to completely (as possible) identify them. 27 pure cultures were runthrough a complete set of tests. The function of this study and of the tests is to gain a definite knowledge of the potability of water supplies by bacteriological examination methods"--Introduction: Scope of This Study, page 3.
