Legionella and Mycobacterium are among the microbial contaminants known to multiply in plumbing systems [77]. 9 Global Drinking Water Quality Goals A global water policy framework can be traced back to 1972 and the Stockholm Declaration, and the first international forum on water was in 1977. At this international forum in 1977, the United Nations recognized the right to water as a human right [25].
