  1. a n = total number of samples in each sample group. Drinking water treatment samples were collected in each season between autumn 2012 and autumn 2014. The rest of the sample groups were sampled from autumn 2012 to spring 2014 except the municipal sewage influent sample, which was collected only once during the autumn 2013 sampling campaign. The samples marked as b had low sequence reads and were not included for further analysis. The total number of samples remaining for further analysis was 230
