Several pathogenic forms exist such as Giardia sp. and Cryptosporidium sp. species, that are responsible for waterborne, communicable diseases. Protozoa range in size from approximately 5 to 100 µm in size. Giardia cysts are 8 to 18 µm in length and 5 to 12 µm in width and Cryptosporidium 3 to 5 µm in size. Fungi are principally aerobic, achlorophyllous microorganisms represented by single and multicellular forms. Most notable of the multicellular fungi are the filamentous varieties known as molds.
