||Abstract: "Flow cytometry (FCM) and 16S rRNA gene sequencing data are commonly used to monitor and characterize microbial differences in drinking water distribution systems. In this study, to assess microbial differences in drinking water distribution systems, 12 water samples from different sources water (groundwater, GW, surface water, SW) were analyzed by FCM, heterotrophic plate count (HPC), and 16S rRNA gene sequencing. FCM intact cell concentrations varied from 2.2 × 10^(3) cells/mL to 1.6 × 10^(4) cells/mL in the network."
||P.926 right column 2nd paragraph: "Flow cytometry total cell concentrations varied from 7.3 × 10^3 cells/mL to 2.6 × 10^5 cells/mL, and intact cell concentrations varied from 2.2 × 10^3 cells/mL to 1.6 × 10^4 cells/mL (Fig. 2) within the distribution network."
