Title: Bacteriological Quality of Drinking Water FromDifferent Sources in Khartoum North
Author: Elmahdi, Sara Osman Hamad
Abstract: This study was done to evaluate the bacteriological quality of drinking water taken from different sources in Khartoum North by enumerating the total bacterial count, total and faecal coliform bacteria. The different water sources tested were river, treated well, non-treated well and bottled water. Total plate count ranged from (102-104) cfu/ml in river, (103-106) cfu/ml in treated well, (0-105) cfu/ml in non-treated well and (102) cfu/ml in one sample of bottled water cfu/ml. The amount of total coliform in different sources ranged from (0-40) cells/100ml in river, ( (1100-0in treated well and ((28-0 cells/100ml in non-treated well but there is no incidence of coliform bacteria in bottled water. Faecal coliform was not found in all samples of drinking water tested. Generally the highest level of bacteriological contamination was detected in treated well water and the predominant bacteria in drinking water samples belong to Bacillus, Enterobacteria and Staphylococcus genera.
