Title: Bacteriological Studies on Drinking Water in Khartoum State - Sudan
Author: Hamid, Aliaa
Abstract: Fifty water samples were collected in Khartoum state from different sources, and investigated with the Multiple Tube Fermentation Technique for total and thermotolerant coliforms and with Membrane Filtration Technique for total coliforms only. Results of the study showed that Multiple Tube Fermentation Technique was more sensitive than Membrane Filtration Technique. Thermotolerant coliforms were detected in (60%) of samples from tap water of well source while in only (30%) of samples from tap water of river source. Thermotolerant coliforms were detected in 10% water samples from periodically cleaned water tanks and from 20% water samples from uncleaned tanks.
