Electrohydraulic treatment was applied to suspensions of Escherichia coli, spores of Bacillus subtilis var. niger, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, and bacteriophage T-2, as well as to raw municipal sewage. These suspensions were all sterilized. Data are presented to show the different degrees of treatment required for each micro-organism.
