The feasibility of a virus-host system LPP-1Plectonema boryanum as an indicator of virus removal by wastewater treatment processes is reported. Full-scale virus studies, along with bacterial characterization of test effluents, were carried out at the Naval Coastal Systems Center treatment plant. The system is a useful tool for modeling studies because 1 the techniques are simple and inexpensive 2 problems, such as bacterial contamination and plaque enumeration, do not occur and 3 the test virus is a safe agent from both the environmental and human health point of view.
